SORT utility uses internal storage space temporarily while sorting.
When the number of records to be sorted is large we have to specify the temporary storage space externaly as temporary datasets using SORTWK to avoid the space abends.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

During sorting process, the SORT utility copies all the records from input file in to a separate temporary memory space and sorts fields in this temporary area and writes to output file.

The Process of sorting takes place in this temporary area called workspace.
