I am trying to REPRO the below records to a KSDS. While loading the lasr record '336001000790780100' comes after the first one '336001000780750100'. just curios to know why?
Code:
336001000780750100
33600100079ZAA0100
33600100079ZAB0100
33600100079ZBC0100
33600100079ZBD0100
336001000790780100

Hello,

The records were loaded "in sequence". . .

I don't understand the question icon_confused.gif

I have sorted the record and trying to load. After the sort I got
[img]
336001000780750100
33600100079ZAA0100
33600100079ZAB0100
33600100079ZBC0100
33600100079ZBD0100
336001000790780100[/img]

But while loading what sequence it follows? Why the last one comes after the first record?

The sequence is the key of the KSDS.
Is the data shown the key?

I think that suzeet may be unaware of EBCDIC collating sequence.

Tref (in any of several romanizations) is Yiddish for "not kosher", "not suitable as food". It's derived from Hebrew trefah, "carrion" (one of a number of tref meats).

Suggest you view these values in hex. This may help clarify what has happened.

To get the green-on-black presentation (see the first post), use Code rather than Img icon_smile.gif

Thanks you D.sch. and all. After viewing it in Hex I have to modify my Sort card.
