I'm calling SORT from a simple Cobol program, and passing 2 OUTFIL statements via IGZSRTCD, to split the input data into 2 output files.

The SORT statement is:-
Code:
    SORT S01-FILE-SORTED                 
      ON ASCENDING KEY P050-CUSTOMER-ID 
                                         
      USING  I01-BUCKET-DISC-INPUT-FILE 
      GIVING O01-BUCKET-DISC-OUTPUT-FILE
             O02-BUCKET-DISC-OUTPUT-FILE.


The OUTFIL statements are mutually exclusive, being:-

Code:
 OUTFIL FILES=DH,INCLUDE=(14,1,CH,EQ,C'1',OR,14,1,CH,EQ,C'2')
 OUTFIL FILES=DD,OMIT=(14,1,CH,EQ,C'1',OR,14,1,CH,EQ,C'2')   


But DFSORT gives these messages:-
Code:
ICE080I 0 IN MAIN STORAGE SORT                         
ICE055I 0 INSERT 8, DELETE 8                           
ICE054I 0 RECORDS - IN: 0, OUT: 0                       
ICE227I 0 SORTOFDH : DELETED = 0, REPORT = 0, DATA = 0 
ICE228I 0 SORTOFDH : TOTAL IN = 0, TOTAL OUT = 0       
ICE227I 0 SORTOFDD : DELETED = 0, REPORT = 0, DATA = 0 
ICE228I 0 SORTOFDD : TOTAL IN = 0, TOTAL OUT = 0       
ICE174I 0 NO DATA RECORDS FOR AN OUTFIL DATA SET - RC=0
ICE134I 0 NUMBER OF BYTES SORTED: 640                   
ICE253I 0 RECORDS SORTED - PROCESSED: 8, EXPECTED: 20   


I can't use any of the more complex syntaxes, as this code must be able to run on both IBM z/OS and Micro Focus. Apologies if I've broken any formatting rules.

For Debugging, try SAVE instead of the OMIT, or add a DEBUG statement just for this.

I ran it with SAVE, and DEBUG, but am none the wiser. Neither output file contains any records.

Interestingly (?) if the output files are directed to SYSOUT, both files contain all input records, sorted into sequence. Presumanly, when directed to datasets, the records are also initially written, but the datasets are closed and then re-opened for output, resulting in empty datasets.

In either case, the messages indicate that DFSORT recognised that there were no records output, despite the use of SAVE.

First of all: try running your SORT from batch, to be sure your SORT statements, and your DD statements are OK, and there is no misunderstanding between yourself, and SORT utility.

Next step: move your stuff inside COBOL.

It works fine from JCL :-

Code:
ICE080I 0 IN MAIN STORAGE SORT                           
ICE055I 0 INSERT 0, DELETE 0                             
ICE054I 0 RECORDS - IN: 8, OUT: 8                       
ICE227I 0 OBKDH    : DELETED = 4, REPORT = 0, DATA = 4   
ICE228I 0 OBKDH    : TOTAL IN = 8, TOTAL OUT = 4         
ICE227I 0 OBKDD    : DELETED = 4, REPORT = 0, DATA = 4   
ICE228I 0 OBKDD    : TOTAL IN = 8, TOTAL OUT = 4         
ICE134I 0 NUMBER OF BYTES SORTED: 640                   


And I could probably use input/output procedures, but that's just a workaround. I guess it's a bug in DFSORT, but I believe that my customer has got the combination (Cobol+SORT+OUTFIL) working, although I'm waiting for confirmation, and whether they are using DFSORT or SYSNCSORT.

Looks strange the difference between
Code:
ICE055I 0 INSERT 0, DELETE 0                             
ICE054I 0 RECORDS - IN: 8, OUT: 8         
and
Code:
ICE055I 0 INSERT 8, DELETE 8
ICE054I 0 RECORDS - IN: 0, OUT: 0


I suggest to compare in details the full SORT logs of both cases. At least different DD-names are used, maybe something else differs?

In this example, absolutely not clear: where INSERT 8, DELETE 8 comes from???

I suspect some mess in used DD names and/or definitions. Maybe unknown defaults in COBOL-SORT interface?
