Hi saagu
Is there any max limit for the no of records with same key.
i.e Max of how many records with a key 'AAA' can be present in the input file?
The output record length will vary on this right?
so, we should have some limit

You want to do this in Sort or in Rexx or you want to submit a sort step through rexx.
There are many topics disscussed on similar requirements in DFSORT/ICETOOL forum

Regards,
Balu

Here is a SORT application that should produce your requested output:
Code:

//SORT  EXEC PGM=SORT,PARM='EQUALS'
//SORTIN  DD *                       
AAA 1                                 
AAA 2                                 
AAA 3                                 
BBB 1                                 
BBB 3                                 
BBB 6                                 
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*                 
//SYSOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                 
//SYSIN   DD *
