COde in following way in your JCL

Code:

//STEP01      EXEC PGM=SORT
//SORTIN      DD DSN=<dataset name>,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT   DD DSN=<dataset name>,
//                 DISP=(new,catlg,delete) 
//SYSIN         DD *                     
  sort control statements described below?
/*
//SYSOUT       DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUDUMP   DD SYSOUT=*


Input file should be mentioned in SORTIN and outout in SORTOUT.

Hope it is clear now.

Regards
Rupesh

Nutan,

Since you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
