Assuming that you don't have any embedded spaces and file lrecl=80 , you can use the following the following DFSORT JCL which will give you the desired results
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=Your input vb file,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
If you do have embedded spaces in between and you want to retain them you can code an E15 exit in cobol, assembler and plug it in to DFSORT.
