I need to remove the first and last record from a particular file, they are always header and trailer records. Is there a direct way to do this in SORT.

I assume there's nothing in the trailer record that identifies it as such so you can't just use OMIT.

Given that, here's a DFSORT job that will do what you asked for. I assumed your input file has RECFM=FB and LRECL=80, but the job can be changed appropriately for other attributes.

Code:

//S1    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=...  input file
//T1 DD DSN=&&T1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5)),DISP=(,PASS)
//S1 DD DSN=&&S1,UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(TRK,(5,5)),DISP=(,PASS)
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY,SKIPREC=1
  INREC OVERLAY=(81:SEQNUM,8,ZD)
  OUTFIL FNAMES=T1
  OUTFIL FNAMES=S1,REMOVECC,NODETAIL,
    OUTREC=(80X),
    TRAILER1=('RCDCT,+',81,8)
/*
//S2    EXEC  PGM=ICEMAN
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=&&T1,DISP=(OLD,PASS)
//SYMNAMES DD DSN=&&S1,DISP=(OLD,PASS)
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...   output file
//SYSIN    DD    *
  OPTION COPY
  OMIT COND=(81,8,ZD,EQ,RCDCT)
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,80)
