For this topic the TS has taken a wander, so I'm putting what I prepared here:

Code:
 OPTION COPY                                                           
 INREC IFOUTLEN=80,IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,OVERLAY= (26:SEQNUM,1,ZD)),
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,BEGIN=(26,1,BI,EQ,B'.......1'),
              RECORDS=2,PUSH=(38:1,2,32:SEQ=1)),
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,BEGIN=(26,1,BI,EQ,B'.......0'),
              RECORDS=2,PUSH=(45:1,2)),
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=(45,2,CH,EQ,C' '),OVERLAY=(20:C'W',4:C'00')),
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=(32,1,CH,EQ,C'2'),
               OVERLAY=(20:C'X',4:1,2,ZD,
                       SUB,38,2,ZD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=2)),
       IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,
              OVERLAY=(20:C'Y',4:1,2,ZD,
                       SUB,45,2,ZD,TO=ZD,LENGTH=2))                         
 OUTFIL REMOVECC,
        HEADER1=(20:C'TYPE',
                 26:C'SEQN',
                 32:C'OSEQ',
                 38:C'LNUM',
                 45:C'RNUM')
//SORTIN   DD *
10
15
17
25
30
35
40
45
50
55
99


Which produces this output (or should, it is untested reformatting of the results of the symbol substitution carried out by DFSORT and could easily contain some typos):

Code:
                   TYPE  SEQN  OSEQ  LNUM   RNUM
10 00              W     1     1     10         
15 05              X     2     2     10     15 
17 02              Y     3     1     17     15 
25 08              X     4     2     17     25 
30 05              Y     5     1     30     25 
35 05              X     6     2     30     35 
40 05              Y     7     1     40     35 
45 05              X     8     2     40     45 
50 05              Y     9     1     50     45 
55 05              X     0     2     50     55 
99 44              Y     1     1     99     55 


Now, I didn't write the code like that, I wrote it like this:

Code:
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYMNAMES DD *
* INPUT RECORD
    INREC-NUMBER,1,2,ZD
SKIP,1
* NEW DATA FOR OUTPUT RECORD
    OUTREC-DIFF-TO-PREV-REC,*,2,ZD

    EXTEND-ODD-SEQ-CH,=,=,CH

                 OVERLAY=(EXTEND-SEQNUM:SEQNUM,1,ZD)),
                                                                     
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,
                      BEGIN=(EXTEND-SEQNUM-BI,EQ,AN-ODD-NUMBER),
                      RECORDS=2,
                      PUSH=(EXTEND-LEFT-NUMBER:INREC-NUMBER,
                            EXTEND-ODD-SEQ:SEQ=1)),
                                                                     
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=GROUP,

                      RECORDS=2,
                      PUSH=(EXTEND-RIGHT-NUMBER:INREC-NUMBER)),
                                                                     
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(EXTEND-RIGHT-NUMBER-CH,EQ,FIRST-RECORD-ON-FILE),
                 OVERLAY=(TPYE-FLAG:FIRST-TO-BE-ZERO,
                          OUTREC-DIFF-TO-PREV-REC:ZERO-FIRST-CALC)),
                                                                     
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=(EXTEND-ODD-SEQ-CH,EQ,NUMBER-AT-LEFT),
                 OVERLAY=(TPYE-FLAG:VALUE-FROM-LEFT,
                          OUTREC-DIFF-TO-PREV-REC:INREC-NUMBER,
                         SUB,
                          EXTEND-LEFT-NUMBER,
                           TO=ZD,LENGTH=2)),
                                                                     
        IFTHEN=(WHEN=NONE,
                 OVERLAY=(TPYE-FLAG:VALUE-FROM-RIGHT,
                          OUTREC-DIFF-TO-PREV-REC:INREC-NUMBER,
                         SUB,
                          EXTEND-RIGHT-NUMBER,
                           TO=ZD,LENGTH=2))
                                                               
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,
         HEADER1=(TPYE-FLAG:C'TYPE',
                  EXTEND-SEQNUM:C'SEQN',
                  EXTEND-ODD-SEQ:C'OSEQ',
                  EXTEND-LEFT-NUMBER:C'LNUM',
                  EXTEND-RIGHT-NUMBER:C'RNUM')

The output is shown in that way to aid the understanding of the solution.

Using the symbols/SYMNAMES it was very easy to produce a report on OUTFIL with column headings.

The spacing would not be used for the end solution, but very simply all the SKIP,5s would be removed, the FLAG and references to it would disappear (the purpose of the flag is to indicate which IFTHEN did what) and the OUTFIL would be removed. Everything still works, nothing to change.

The requirement can also be satisfied by using JOINKEYS along the lines of either of these examples:

They provide a means to have the "current" and "previous" records together on the REFORMAT record.
