I have a pipe delimited PS file (table unload) which is huge - which I will have to split into say 50 files (using sort utility), now I have to append a column header to each of the 50 files. w/o cobol or 50 individual sort steps - is there any other way to do this in a single/fewer steps?

Tried out OUTREC, OUTFIL etc , but none of them could satidfy the problem statement i have given - based on my limited knowledge. But I tried out using sort utility only. Appreciate help. I wouldnt dare to come here and post a question without trying out by self or without enough googling icon_smile.gif

Well, you can do it in one step, depending on the dataset specificatons. The following sample is submitted from a dataset with recfm VB and lrecl 256. The headers are concatenated in front of each concatenated dataset. Yes I know that both input datasets are the same, but hey, this is just a sample.

Code:
//*                                         
//S1      EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                 
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                         
//SYSUT1   DD *,DCB=(XX.TEST.SEQ.V256)       
Header 1                                     
//         DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XX.TEST.SEQ.V256 
//         DD *,DCB=(XX.TEST.SEQ.V256)       
Header 2                                     
//         DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XX.TEST.SEQ.V256 
//SYSUT2   DD SYSOUT=*
