Hi,

I have file ( need just idea, so let it FB=80):

Code:

111111
111111
111111
111111
111111
111111
111111
111111
111111
111111
222222
222222
222222
222222
222222
222222


group is in position 1-6.
Is it possible to abend sort if records in any group is more than 7 ... Based on the file in example - abend, because group 111111 have more than 7 records

Well, you can very easily get an RC=4 if there are no groups with more than seven records (or any arbitrary known value). Have a subsequent step which abends when you get RC=0 in the step. Or deal with the RC=4 as good RC=0 as bad in your JCL, or your Scheduler.

Here's an OVERLAY. Put this under an IFTHEN=(WHEN=(logicalexpression) for your required condition,

Code:
OVERLAY=(5:Z,5:1,1,PD,ADD,+1,TO=PD,LENGTH=1)


If you desperately, desperately want a fake abend, that should do it.

Thank you, Bill .. I think it is better to work with RC, than force to abend . So include to output only records with more than 7 in group and RC=4 if output is empty, right?
