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/14)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file (FB/13)
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   INREC BUILD=(2,13)
/*


If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
