Below is my SORT card

Code:

SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=COPY
OMIT COND=(1,1,CH,EQ,C,'1',OR,1,1,CH,EQ,C,'0',OR,
1,4,CH,EQ,C,' THE',OR,1,1,CH,EQ,C,'   ')
/*

When I run the above code I get the error
WER268A OMIT STATEMENT : SYNTAX ERROR

I did a HEX ON in my JCL as well and did not find anything unusual.

Please advice

You don't need a "," after C, remove it and try again:

Code:
SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=COPY
OMIT COND=(1,1,CH,EQ,C'1',OR,1,1,CH,EQ,C'0',OR,
1,4,CH,EQ,C' THE',OR,1,1,CH,EQ,C'   ')
/*

When you have something which is wrong, you have to give details of what is wrong. Anuj took the time to spot it anyway.

Try this. Is that easier to understand what is happening?

Code:

//SYSIN DD *
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OMIT COND=(1,1,CH,EQ,C'1',
           OR,
             1,1,CH,EQ,C'0',
           OR,
             1,4,CH,EQ,C' THE',
           OR,
             1,1,CH,EQ,C' ')
/*


You can even try this, making use of the SS format to have all uses of that field specified together.

Code:
  SORT FIELDS=COPY
  OMIT COND=(1,1,S,EQ,C' ,0,1',
           OR,
             1,4,CH,EQ,C' THE')
/*
