Naresh,

I assumed an FB dataset of LRECL=80. Modify it as per your attributes.
Code:
//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY               
  OUTFIL BUILD=(1,80,/,80C'-')       
/*

A small doubt..
OUTFIL BUILD=(1,80,/,80C'-')
In this what does the '/' signify ??........
(1 is start pos,80 is length)

You're welcome. '/' stands for a single line break. It will take you to the next line.

nareshdacha,

The following DFSORT JCL will give you the desired results

Code:
         
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT                               
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                 
//SORTIN   DD *                                         
LINE-1                                                 
LINE-2                                                 
LINE-3                                                 
LINE-4                                                 
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                 
//SYSIN    DD *                                         
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                                     
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,RECORDS=2,PUSH=(81:ID=8))   
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,BUILD=(1,80),                         
  SECTIONS=(81,8,TRAILER3=(80C'-'))                     
//*


the output of this is

Code:

LINE-1                               
LINE-2                               
--------------------------------------
LINE-3                               
LINE-4                               
--------------------------------------

For this requirement you might want to try this
Code:
//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY               
  OUTFIL BUILD=(1,80,/,80C'-',/,80C'-')       
/*

Thanks Arun...
I know that REMOVECC is to remove the ASCII char which will append in the first..

Could you please tell what does the PUSH=(81:ID=8)) means....

Hi Naresh,

It overlays 8 byte ID character at position 81 that increments by 1 for each group.

Thanks
