1.What is your input file length?
2.How many fields does 1 record contain (atmost)?
3.Will all the fields be filled always?
4.Is the field delimiter space?
5.What is your sort product ?

3 fields. Each field is 4 characters length


You will have to be cautious when length becomes 4 for any of your field upon using the above sort card.
