Can the sort control cards be split in different files?

If I have a include condition that has too many records, can these be kept in a separate file (CARDIN)? if need be we can just update the CARDIN with new conditions

e.g.

Code:
 
//SORTIN   DD   DSN=TEST.SORTIN,DISP=SHR
//include-file dd  <DSN>
//SORTOUT  DD   DSN=TEST.SORTOUT,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN    DD   *

SORT FIELDS=(12,8,CH,A)

<use the include cond from file>

OUTREC statement

You have at least five years' experience, you claim JCL as a skill, and you don't know how to concatenate data sets? icon_mad.gif

And what do you mean by "too many records"?


Code:
//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,10,CH.A)
//        DD DSN=any-ps-including-member-of-pds/e,disp=... (FB/80)
//        DD *
  SUM FIELDS=NONE

While doing so, be aware of ICE151A

Thanks,
