Hello everyone!
So... I have a text file like:

SORTIN (sample)
Code:

FIRST DAY
NEW DAY
TIME FOR FUN
MY NAME IS CARLOS


I need a result file with second word of each line, but problem is the start position of this second word is variable:

SORTOUT
Code:

DAY
DAY
FOR
NAME


I am trying to do this using a Syncsort utility, it's possible?

Yes, have a look in the manual for PARSE. Many examples here, and elsewhere by search-engineing.

jackare,
Assuming your second word is always the one to start after (STARTAFT) first blank and ends before blank (ENDBEFR) and can be max 20 bytes (FIXLEN=20), below should work for you. Tested on DFsort.

Code:
//SYSIN    DD *                                             
  OPTION COPY                                               
  INREC PARSE=(%01=(STARTAFT=C' ',ENDBEFR=C' ',FIXLEN=20)),
        BUILD=(%01)                                         
/*                                                         
//*                                                         


Gives below output. If it doesn't work, look for PARSE in Syncsort manuals.

Code:
----+----1----+----2
DAY                 
DAY                 
FOR                 
NAME               



Thanks,
