1. I have a file. I want to include only selected records in sort (JCL sort). How do we do this?

2. I have a file. I want to sort the records and want to place the records from this file into three output files. For this am I right that we just need to give three output DD statements?

1. Use DFSORT's INCLUDE statement to specify the criteria you want to use to include records, e.g.

Code:

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...  output file
//SYSIN DD *
   OPTION COPY
   INCLUDE COND=(21,3,CH,EQ,C'ABC')
/*


For the many ways in which you can specify the criteria using DFSORT's INCLUDE statement, see:

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CA10/3.7?DT=20050222160456

2. No, you also need a DFSORT OUTFIL statement, e.g.,

Code:

//S2 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//OUT1 DD DSN=...  output file1
//OUT2 DD DSN=...  output file2
//OUT3 DD DSN=...  output file3
//SYSIN DD *
   SORT FIELDS=(...)
   OUTFIL FNAMES=(OUT1,OUT2,OUT3)
/*


Since you're obviously not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
