Hi

I am using the SORT utility to get the sum of a particular field in my input file.
After some research on this forum I came up with :

SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTFIL FNAMES=SORTOUT,NODETAIL,REMOVECC,
TRAILER1=(C'000010010', *XMIT-FILE-ID
COUNT=(PD,LENGTH=06), *XMIT-REC-CT INTEGER
TOT=(72,16,C))

Does this work for alphanumeric fields too is what I would like to know.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Which release of which sort product is used on your system?

No, fields must be numeric to be totaled.

How would "adding" names be of any value?

If you have only numeric values in that field, yes, you can.
