If I am recaling you correctly then you want to sort VSAM like Flat file. If it the case then we can not sort externally. If not then please elaborate your peoblem.

Hope this helps

Regards
Rupesh

Yes, DFSORT can sort a VSAM file to another VSAM file or non-VSAM file.

Yes, but you have to decide whether to treat the VSAM input file as F or V and set the starting position of the sort field accordingly. See the following for more information:
