Hello everybody,

I have a question please. I'd like to get some information using SORT utility. For ex:

Field A             Field B
AAAAAAA          2000-01-01
AAAAAAA          2001-06-01
AAAAAAA          2013-01-01
BBBBBBBB         1999-01-01
BBBBBBBB         2000-01-01
CCCCCCCC        2007-01-01

I'd like to get this:
AAAAAAA          2013-01-01
BBBBBBBB         2000-01-01
CCCCCCCC        2007-01-01

How could I do that? Any idea, please ?
Thanks in advance

Use OUTFIL reporting functions. You'll need NODETAIL,REMOVECC and then SECTIONS (where you specify your control field) and TRAILER3, which would specify the entire data.

If you had used code tags all those spaces would have been retained.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
