I'm going to generate a large volume of data, say, containing 1,000,000,000 records, and load the DS into a table.

for example, I have below table definition,
Code:

CREATE TABLE AAAAA.ATTTTT(                 
   ACCTID             INTEGER        NOT NULL,
   ACCTNAME           CHAR(2)        NOT NULL,
   TEL                CHAR (9)       NOT NULL,     
   PRIMARY KEY(ACCTID)                         
)                                             
IN TESTDB01.TSATTT; 

do you have better way to generate this dataset using DFSort ?
thanks.

You could use IEBDG.

dejunzhu,

You could use one record in SORTIN and specify OUTFIL with REPEAT and SEQNUM to generate a large number of output records. (But I'm not really sure what you're trying to do exactly so that may or may not be relevant).
