Hi Sripriya,

1) Syncsort is basically a high performance sort/merge/copy utility....rather a NON-IBM product, a competitor to IBM's DFSort.

2) The Sort Fields indicate, Ascending sort on the Composite key made up of 2 fields, 1st one a character field from 14---16, 2nd one a character field from 2---12. Once the sorting is over Outrec formats the record layout
Outrec format starting from the first :- 14---16 from i/p,2---12 from i/p,17---23 from i/p,24---32 from i/p, 7 binary zeros,33---35 from i/p,40 blanks.

Regards,
Nikhil .S.
