Hi,

I want to pass a date from step 1 and pass it to step 2 before it does the sort. here is what needs to be done

step 1 - db2 step writes out a date

step2 - sort a file to eliminate records which have dates less than the date in step1. (I want to supply the date as a parm from step1)

Hello,

SYMNAMES has been available in Syncsort for a while.

What version of Syncsort is being used (this is at the top of the informational output when the sort is executed).
