Hi ..
I was just trying out to use symbolic paramter in syncsort in the below jcl
Code:

//   SET DT='A'
//PSTP0040 EXEC PGM=SORT,PARM='JP1"&D"'
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*
..
//SYSIN     DD *         
                         
  SORT FIELDS=COPY       
  INCLUDE=(80,1,CH,EQ,JP1)


but getting error
Code:

   INCLUDE=(80,1,CH,EQ,JP1)               
                       *                   
 WER131I  PARM FIELD ERROR - JP1"&D"       
 WER268A  OUTFIL STATEMENT  : SYNTAX ERROR


I am using SYNCSORT FOR Z/OS 1.4.0.1 , and i read in google that it supports the use of JP parameter. Could you please advice if the syntax is wrong or any other issue.

Despite what you have found, I don't think SyncSort supports the resolution of PARM information to control cards.

Oughtn't you to SET D rather than DT, or alternatively use DT in the parameter?

I suggest that you re-read that item FULLY. You will then understand where you are going wrong.

OK, the link looks good but as Nic said, re-read the item in the link, and review against what you've told us.

Might you have it? Include //SYMNOUT DD SYSOUT=* and post the full sysout from that and the step itself, please.

Bill, I might be wrong but JPn is not supported by Syncsort as they way it does by DFSORT.

rikdeb,

The link says JPn parm options are available with Syncsort MFX for z/OS Release 1.4.2.0 and you have Syncsort MFX for z/OS Release 1.4.0.1.
You may try the same test when your Syncsort gets upgraded to have this additional features.
