Using SYNCTOOL I am sorting two different flat files and then joining them to produce one SORTOUT.

Now I need to know how should I estimate the work file size as I am using two different input files with different LRECL and amount of records? And how many work files should I define?

Also if at all I do not define the work file will the perfoamce be affected?

Have a look in your manual, this will tell you how to estimate, if it is necessary etc and performance dos/don'ts.

EDIT: SyncSort/SyncTool queries should be in the JCL forum, not DFSORT/ICETOOL.

What is the DYNALOC is set up to at your shop. If it's Y, no need to code the SORTWORK files in a sort application.
