Is DFSORT equipped to format unformatted records? I get an abend trying to open them.

DFSORT is equipped to process recfm F(b) and V(B)

how to manage the content is completely up to the skill of the user
given that the record content can be parsed unambiguosly and processed using dfsort provided functions

as already remarked zillions of times
DFSORT will not process RECFM=U dataset...

review Your terminology, please
RECFM is related to the dataset organization
formatted/unformatted are related to the content...
