Hello,

If you post the jcl, control statements, and complete diagnostic information from the "exceeded" run, someone may be able to help.

Please note that this topic has been moved to the JCL part of the forum as this is the place for Syncsort topics.

Hello,

Please also post the jcl that was submitted. How many records are there in each file?

The wer046a message says the process used all available SORTWK space.

Hello,

Is WORK the proper unit for sortwork on this system?

Is there enough space available? You might try an experiment with a primary of 25 and no secondary specified in the jcl. You might also try sysda instead of work - just as an experiment.

With all possible parm parameters using MAX sort i tried but of no use it is giving the same error and i tried using as many work space with maximum cylinders.

I think it is not working with syncsort. With icetool it is joining but i m getting more records in out file.

Please find the icetool jcl and can u please tell me whether i m going correct or not

Hi bnveena,

I tried it with Syncsort, using your examples:
Code:

//SYSOUT   DD   SYSOUT=*

//         DISP=SHR                                     
//SORTJNF2 DD DSN=TST.INFILE2,                         
//         DISP=SHR                                     
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=TST.OUTFILE,                         
//         UNIT=SYSDA,

Hello,

You need to resolve the issue with your support people. The problem is specific to your environment and we do not have access to that environment.

Why is MAX sort mentioned?

Did you use sysda instead of work for the sortwk unit? You might also try removing all of the sortwk dd's as another experiment.

Dick, the esoteric for the DASD is something that can vary from site to site. I have worked in quite a few where the temporary dataset pool was accessed via UNIT=WORK

Hi Expat,

Yup, i've seen work, temp, scrat, and a few others, but sometimes they are extremely low on space<g>. Stuff that should be transient (or not exist at all) winds up cluttering the volumes. . . I do remember one place where a programmer asked me why he couldn't create a particular dataset. Seems like they'd gotten "not cat 2" many, many times and had an allocation on every volume in the group. Only one in the catalog, but a vtoc entry on every available volume. . .

I thought that sysda might show something. . .

I'm also still confused by the "MAX sort" reference.

We'll see icon_wink.gif
