Hi,
I have a input file whose rec length is 200.
There are 4 fields and the 4th field has rec length of 100 .
I want to sort the file based on the 4th field and for those records for that 4th field whose length exceeds 40.


Thanks in advance
Max

You need to try first yourself.
Second , without the sample input and expected output you are less likely get the right answers

I have used this sort card.. getting the output but looks like there are few records which also coming with no values may be low values or hex..

SORT FIELDS=COPY
INCLUDE COND=(141,60,CH,EQ,C' ')

SORT FIELDS=COPY
OMIT COND=(141,60,CH,EQ,C' ')

You need to find those records and find out what values you get and ALTSEQ would help You further to turn them into spaces <if required>.
Please also make a use of "code" tags when representing a code.

How the "length" of the "4th field" is defined/determined?
1) until first space/comma/quote/zero/whatever else?
2) using the physical end of RECFM=VB?
3) another sophisticated method?

Show us sample input data and the sample output data required. Someone would be able to help.

According to you, your LRECL is 200. Your record layout description infers that the first 3 fields have a total length of 100 bytes and the fourth field is 100 bytes in length. Where does this length of 40 come in? ALL records will have a length of 100 for the 4th field.
