Hi,

I am using the jcl as given below:

Code:


//STEP07   EXEC PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG  DD  SYSOUT=*                                               
//DFSMSG   DD  SYSOUT=*                                           
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(500,500)),DISP=(MOD,PASS)   
//SORTIN   DD DSN=OPERA12,FILE1,                       
//            DISP=SHR                                               
//         DD DSN=OPERA12.FILE2,                       
//            DISP=SHR                                               
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=OPERA12.FILE3,                   
//            DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),               
//            SPACE=(CYL,(300,300),RLSE),AVGREC=K,VOL=(,,,59)       
//TOOLIN DD *                                                       
 COPY FROM(SORTIN) TO(T1)  USING(CTL4)                               
 OCCUR FROM(T1) LIST(SORTOUT) -                                     
             TITLE('                     XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX') -
             DATE-                                         
             PAGE -                                         
             HEADER('ABC') ON(1,14,CH) -                   
             HEADER('DE') ON(19,2,CH) -                     
             HEADER('DATE') ON(21,10,CH)-                   
             HEADER('YYYYYYY') ON(31,1,CH)-                 
             HEADER('MESSAGE') ON(36,12,CH)-               
             HEADER(COUNTXX)  ON(VALCNT,N06) -           
             BLANK                                         
/*                                                         
//CTL4CNTL DD *                                             
  SORT FIELDS=(1,18,CH,A)                                   
/*                                                         


Here o/p file going empty everytime. But when we are writing the SORTOUT to the spool, spool is geeting populated. We want to write the details in the file only.

File1: 47/FB
File2: 47/FB

Our client mainframe is using the below version of DFSORT:

Code:

ICE143I 0 BLOCKSET     SORT  TECHNIQUE SELECTED                                 
ICE250I 0 VISIT http://www.ibm.com/storage/dfsort FOR DFSORT PAPERS, EXAMPLES AN
ICE000I 0 - CONTROL STATEMENTS FOR 5694-A01, Z/OS DFSORT V1R10 - 09:02 ON THU JU


Please help to resolve the issue.

Thanks
Gagan

Gagan,

I don't know if this is the problem, but it's worth trying.

Use LIST(OUT) instead of LIST(SORTOUT) and change the //SORTOUT DD to a //OUT DD.

Since SORTOUT is the name used by DFSORT for the normal output and LIST is NOT the normal output, using LIST(SORTOUT) may be causing a problem.

@ Skolusu

Code:

ICE603I 0 INFORMATION PRINTED IN SORTOUT  DATA SET                   
ICE628I 0 RECORD COUNT:  000000001142137                             
ICE638I 0 NUMBER OF RECORDS RESULTING FROM CRITERIA:  000000000053995


These were the messages displayed in the spool. But the solution suggested by Frank worked fine. icon_smile.gif

Thanks all for the help.
