Hello and welcome to the forum,

Which sort product is used on your system? The informational output from a sort execution should show the product name and release level.

Sureet,

You can use a DFSORT job like the following to do what you asked for. Change FIXLEN=20 to whatever length you need.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
Sureet Mookherjee
Karthikeyan Raju
Pranab Mohanty
/*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  INREC PARSE=(%01=(ENDBEFR=C' ',FIXLEN=20)),
    BUILD=(%01)
/*
