My JCL/job has SYSIN card in SORT as mentioned below,
//SYSIN DD *,DLM=ZZ
SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTFIL HEADER1=('Same of all Jobs',/,' job name',/,'job owner'),NODETAIL,REMOVECC
ZZ
//*

I want to achieve templatization of SORT control cards thru SYSIN thru PROC. Currently this is part of JCL.

Certain part in the OUTFIL HEADER1 need to be different for each of the 1000 jobs. ex:- job name, job owner from above.

How should i code symbolic given thru the JCL/job in the PROC's SYSIN member?

Same way as usual - if the level of JCL interpreter allows substitution of symbolics in in-stream data otherwise use the method described in the DFSort manual for passing in symbolic parameters.

Elixir,
Refer to Chapter 8. Using symbols for fields and constants in DFSORT Application Programming Guide.

Thanks,
