//SYSIN DD *

SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTFIL FILES=(1,2),SPLIT
/*


After executing this sort job with this sysin, every 1 and 2nd records will go into output files respectively.(there should be two output files specified.

Regards
Jai

pavan,

Expanding on jai's response, you can use a DFSORT job like this to do what you asked for:

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN                 
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                 
//SORTIN DD DSN=... input file                             
//ODD DD DSN=...  output file1 (odd records)                         
//EVEN DD DSN=...  output file2 (even records)                       
//SYSIN DD *                             
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                       
  OUTFIL FNAMES=(ODD,EVEN),SPLIT         
/*
