VLSHRT always seems to require 2 passes to extract and sort.

Can the following 2 DFSORT steps be combined into 1 for more efficiency and elegance ? OPTION VLSHRT always seems to require 2 passes to extract and sort.

//JOBS EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TTDX.MINILOG.MDBD0186
//SORTOUT DD DISP=(,PASS),SPACE=(CYL,1100),DSN=&&L

OPTION VLSHRT
SORT FIELDS=COPY
INCLUDE COND=(62,8,CH,EQ,C'$HASP373')

//JOBS EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DISP=(SHR,DELETE),DSN=&&L
//SORTOUT DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TTD.JOBS.MDBD0186

SORT FIELDS=(43,3,CH,A,70,9,CH,A)
OUTREC FIELDS=(1,4,43,3,70,9)
SUM FIELDS=NONE

I believe these control statements would do it:

Code:

   OPTION VLSHRT                       
   INCLUDE COND=(62,8,CH,EQ,C'$HASP373')     
   SORT FIELDS=(43,3,CH,A,70,9,CH,A)         
   SUM FIELDS=NONE                           
   OUTFIL OUTREC=(1,4,43,3,70,9),VLFILL=C' ' 


You need to use OUTFIL OUTREC instead of an OUTREC statement to allow VLSHRT to be used and you need to use VLFILL to pad a "short" OUTREC field.
