HI
This is my sort JCL

Code:
//SORT EXEC PGM=SORT                       
Sort input:
aaaaa11
aaaaa33
aaaaa22
My Sort card:
//SYSIN   DD *             
  SORT FIELDS=(01,07,CH,A)
/*       

I am expecting result as:
Code:
aaaaa11
aaaaa22
aaaaa33

But I am getting result as:
Code:
aaaaa11
aaaaa33
aaaaa22

I am in the impression that aaaaa33 greater than aaaaa22. but it is not. I am confused with above result and not sure why my result is different. not sure if I am doing anything silly here

what is the record format of Your input file

seems that it is a variable record,
for variable records You should take into account the 4 byte RDW
Code:
SORT FIELDS=(05,07,CH,A)
