Hi,

I assume your LRECL = 80.Try this code.

Code:
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=SORT                                   
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=H                                     
//SORTIN   DD DSN=U123194.PUSH.F1,DISP=SHR                 
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=U123194.PUSH.F93,DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
//           DCB=(RECFM=FB,BLKSIZE=0,LRECL=80),UNIT=SYSDA, 
//           SPACE=(CYL,(10,5),RLSE)                       
//SYSIN DD *                                               
    SORT FIELDS=(1,80,CH,A)                                 
/*

If that doesn't help, you need to explain in more detail what you're trying to do, and show an example of your input records and what you want the output records to look like. Also, what is the RECFM and LRECL of the input file?
