Hello,
I am trying to copy some records from FB input file using Sort.
What diffrence it would make to the sort card when I use VB file instead of FB file as Input???

Please let me know.

You'll need to add 4 extra bytes to the FB characters in your SORT CARD.
For ex.-
Code:
FB:    SORT FIELDS=(1,4,CH,A)
VB:    SORT FIELDS=(5,4,CH,A)


Paste your SORT Card here, if yet not clear.

Regards,

Priyesh.
