hi,

Is it possible to sort a file with a index such that in one half of the file index is at different position and for other half index is at different position.

eg.

POSITION (1-3)____ (4-6)________ (9-11)
_________SIS ______111
_________SIS ______222
_________SIS ______333
_________DCU __________________ 444
_________DCU __________________ 555
_________DCU __________________ 666


For first half position 4-6 is index and for other half position 9-11 is index.
Is it possible for DFSORT to take index as 4-6 for first part and 9-11 for other part.

Yes, you can, but you haven't given enough information for me to show you how.

How do you identify the "first part" and "second part"? Do records with 'SIS' in 1-3 have the key in 4-6, and records with 'DCU' in 1-3 have the key in 9-11? Or is it something else that identifies where the key is in a particular record? What?

Also, what is the RECFM and LRECL of your input file?

Yes it is the same way, for the record SIS in 1-3, key is in 4-6 and for record DCU in 1-3, key is in 9-11.

RECFM = FB
LRECL = 1713

Here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file (FB/1713)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/1713)
//SYSIN DD *
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,3,CH,EQ,C'SIS'),OVERLAY=(1714:4,3)),
   IFTHEN=(WHEN=(1,3,CH,EQ,C'DCU'),OVERLAY=(1714:9,3))
  SORT FIELDS=(1714,3,CH,A)
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,1713)
