HI,

Needed help with the following problem. I am trying to write the counts (only) of records which satisfies certain conditions in to 3 different files. the following is the SORT card I am using.

Code:
SYSIN :                                                     
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                           
  OUTFIL FILES=01,                                           
       INCLUDE=(52,2,CH,EQ,C'LS',AND,(138,3,CH,EQ,C'ACT',OR,
              138,4,CH,EQ,C'TACT'),AND,                     
              1109,20,CH,EQ,C'OAK ISLAND'),NODETAIL,         
      TRAILER1=(COUNT=(M10,LENGTH=10))                       
  OUTFIL FILES=02,                                           
      INCLUDE=(52,2,CH,EQ,C'LS',AND,(138,3,CH,EQ,C'ACT',OR, 
              138,4,CH,EQ,C'TACT'),NODETAIL,                 
      TRAILER1=(COUNT=(M10,LENGTH=10))                       
                                      *                     
  OUTFIL FILES=03,                                           
      INCLUDE=(138,3,CH,EQ,C'ACT',OR,                       
              138,4,CH,EQ,C'TACT'),NODETAIL,                 
      TRAILER1=(COUNT=(M10,LENGTH=10))                       
WER268A  OUTFIL STATEMENT  : SYNTAX ERROR                   
WER449I  SYNCSORT GLOBAL DSM SUBSYSTEM ACTIVE               


Can you tell me the correct syntax?

Thanks
George

The INCLUDE in 2nd OUTFIL is missing a parenthesis.

Also looks to me as though your can improve clarity and performance by INCLUDE COND=(... for ACT and TACT. You can then remove all of those from your OUTFIL INCLUDE=s, which will simplify, and you won't process any non-ACT/TACT records at all, rather than processing to just ignore them.
