You can do it by sorting right.
SORT FIELDS=COPY
STARTREC=996

Yes, you did something wrong. As you were careful not to show messages, we can't say exactly what.

ETA: I just realized that this thread has been re-opened after nearly six years. Perhaps that's the problem icon_biggrin.gif

I think, I found the problem, it looks like, we cant give PDS(member) as the input file. It works only with flat or VSAM file but not with PDS member.
