When you sort a RRDS file using SORT KEY, File Manager sorts the RRDS into VSAM SLOT sequence. The SLOT number is a unique number that the VSAM access method allocates for each record. If the records of the RRDS file have been re-ordered by moving records via a move (M, Mn, or MM) prefix command or SORT primary command, SORT KEY re-orders the records as they were when the file was opened. However, when you add records using insert (I or In), copy (C, Cn, or CC), or repeat (R, Rn, RR, or RRn) prefix commands, the new records do not have a SLOT number assigned as the file is still in memory. In this case, SORT KEY re-orders the new records at the bottom of the file.
