I have to sort a file on a Numeric field PIC 9(09).
What should I use as the sort card ? for example the starting pos is 1 and the length is 9 .
Which one of the following is correct ?
Sort Fields = (1,9,ZD,A) or (1,5,PD,A) or (1,9,FS,A) ?

sreelu.s,

You would use ZD format. Check this link which explains DFSORT Formats for COBOL Data Types
