hi selvakumar_ms,

I will try to xplain you more clearly for what bluebird said:


//sysin dd*
sort fields=(p1,l1,ch)
sum fields=none

In the above sysin stmt,if we specify sum fields=none it will automatically take care of removing duplicates while sorting.

p1 in sort filelds is nothing but the position of duplicates.
l1 is length of those fields from p1.
ch is sort parameter for character.


If you have key field of length 7 bytes on which you want to eliminate duplicates then the following JCL will give you the results.

Code:
Code:

//STEP001  EXEC PGM=SORT
//*
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN   DD DSN=YOUR.INPUT.FILE,
//            DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=YOUR.OUTPUT.FILE,
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
//            SPACE=(CYL,(X,Y),RLSE)
//SYSIN    DD *
   SORT FIELDS=(1,7,CH,A)
   SUM FIELDS=NONE
/*             



Thanks
Anu
