Hi,

I am using SORT verb in cobol pgm, as below

SORT WORKFILE ON ASCENDING KEY AGE2 USING INFILE
GIVING OUTFILE.

It will sucessfully compile after RUN, it will also give MAXCC=0.

But it not write anything in output(sorted) file.
It will display msg at TSO SDSF ST like below..

The SORT-RETURN special register was never referenced, but the current content indicated the sort or merge operation in program FILESRT on line number 42 was unsuccessful.

PLEASE GIVE SOME SOLUTION. IT'S URGENT

If you do not reference SORT-RETURN anywhere in your program, the COBOL run time, tests the return code. If the return code is 16, COBOL issues a run-time diagnostic message.

Guess you have declared the files in the SELECT statement. Make sure that the input file/output file must not be open when the SORT statement begins execution.

better check for the SORT-RETURN to know about the exact error....
