Search the forum, check the documentation. Answer should be clear then.

Even just try it with valid syntax.

So is the "H" from production? As H is bang up-to-date, yes it works. Where is the evidence of your colleague?

Useit,

Did you look here?

http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=33389

It discusses the different levels of DFSORT in detail.

ICE201I H indicates you have ALL PTFs installed (Oct, 2010 level).
JOINKEYS has been available since Nov, 2009.

Another good place to look to see when various DFSORT and ICETOOL functions became available is:
