when i write below statement

Code:

   OUTFIL FNAMES=DEPT1,INCLUDE=(5,50,CH,EQ,C'@''),


since i want to input over 50 character '@' when i do the EQ condition.

So i must input 50 @ ? any easy way ? maybe like (50) @ ?

Here are two ways to avoid coding 50 @ characters with DFSORT. For method 1, I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes. For method 2, the input file can have any RECFM and LRECL.

Method 1

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/80)
//DEPT1 DD DSN=...   output file (FB/80)
//SYSIN    DD    *
   OPTION COPY
   INREC OVERLAY=(81:50C'@')
   OUTFIL FNAMES=DEPT1,INCLUDE=(5,50,CH,EQ,81,50,CH),
     BUILD=(1,80)
/*


Method 2

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD *
RECORD
/*
//SORTOUT DD DSN=&&S1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(1,1)),DISP=(,PASS)
//SYSIN    DD    *
   OPTION COPY
   INREC BUILD=(C'TARG,''',50C'@',C'''',80:X)
/*
//S2    EXEC  PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYMNAMES DD DSN=&&S1,DISP=(OLD,PASS)
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//DEPT1 DD DSN=...   output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
   OPTION COPY
   OUTFIL FNAMES=DEPT1,INCLUDE=(5,50,CH,EQ,TARG)
/*
