Not to worry - i just try to be impartialSorry Dick - you mis-read my comment - maybe 'misunderstood' is a better word.
Because i've been a migrant data worker for so long, i wind up using lots of different "things" and multiple releases and versions of them. . .
FWIW - most of the current dfsort solutions work in the current release of Syncsort.
I recommend that if someone has a working solution, but the product on their current system is a different product, give it a try - often there is a pleasant surprise
