Hi,

I have to split an input file based on certain condition to different output files. What is the maximum number of files i can use as output in a SORT step.

Thanks & Regards,
Nirmal

Which SORT product are you using (DFSORT, Syncsort, CA-SORT)?

Hi,

I have used 300 output files using SYNCSORT and DFORT and have not been restricted by SORTOF01-99.

I used

Code:
OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT001,INCLUDE=(1,3,CH,EQ,C'001') 
OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT002,INCLUDE=(1,3,CH,EQ,C'002') 
to
OUTFIL FNAMES=OUT300,INCLUDE=(1,3,CH,EQ,C'300')

yes, you're right, fnames works great and you can go above 99 outputs
Even with OUTFIL FILES=xx you can go beyond 99. OUTFIL FILES=xx where x can be any alphanumeric character or special character supported by JCL DD statements.
