Please don't tailgate old topic, but post a new question.

Because you have SyncSort, and it is not part of SyncSort.

This is an old post and you should not be tailgating an old post. Well, said that - "?" is a 'place holder' and will work with DFSort and not with SyncSort; that will use FILL=C'#' as shown here: http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=60629&highlight=

Please note in FILL=C'#' - '#' is symbolic representation here, actually, it can be any character.
