I know its not a good practice but an option if it is just limits to 5.
Code:
//STEP1   EXEC PGM=SORT                                                 
//INA      DD *                                                         
AAA 123                                                                 
BBB 345                                                                 
CCC 4579                                                               
DDD 4578                                                               
//INB      DD *                                                         
AAA 123                                                                 
BBB 345                                                                 
CCC 4579                                                               
DDD 4578                                                               
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                                   
//SYSIN DD *                                                           
   OPTION COPY                                                         
   JOINKEYS F1=INA,FIELDS=(1,3,A),SORTED,NOSEQCK                       
   JOINKEYS F2=INB,FIELDS=(1,3,A),SORTED,NOSEQCK                       
   REFORMAT FIELDS=(F1:1,8,F1:4,1,F1:1,4,F1:1,4,F1:1,4,F1:1,4,F1:1,4)   

Output:
Code:
********************************* TOP OF DATA **********************************
AAA 123  AAA AAA AAA AAA AAA                                                   
BBB 345  BBB BBB BBB BBB BBB                                                   
CCC 4579 CCC CCC CCC CCC CCC                                                   
DDD 4578 DDD DDD DDD DDD DDD                                                   
******************************** BOTTOM OF DATA ********************************

I do not understand what is so complex about the requirement. It seems that it can be achieved by only doing a build as simple as:
Code:
BUILD=(1,9,1,4,1,4,1,4,1,4,1,4)


Learncoholic, please explain more about the complexity of the task.

Haha, RahulG31, you spotted rightly. I don't know, why I had to think too much on that.
