You need to show the code that is failing. Also please used the Code tags to preserve formatting.

I believe you need the help of PARSE operand of SORT.

If your input data looks like this:
Code:
//SORTIN DD *               
 ABC,XYZ,STREET10,MAINROAD10
 ABC,XYZ,,MAINROAD10         


And you need output like this:

Code:
 ABC XYZ  STREET10  MAINROAD10   
 ABC XYZ            MAINROAD10   


Then you may want to use PARSE and build a SYSIN card like this:
Code:
 OPTION COPY   
 OUTREC PARSE=(%01=(ENDBEFR=C',',FIXLEN=5), 
               %02=(ENDBEFR=C',',FIXLEN=5), 
               %03=(ENDBEFR=C',',FIXLEN=10),
               %04=(ENDBEFR=C',',FIXLEN=10)),
 BUILD=(%01,%02,%03,%04)
