Hi,

I have a VB 8182 file with many different record lengths.
Anyone know of a way to include the last 80 byes of each record in the sort keys?

Hello,

Suggest consideration be given to creating this file with the "key" as the first 80 bytes, not the last.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

johnwp53,

Try the following DFSORT JCL which will give you the desired results
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT                                         
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                                           
//SORTIN   DD DSN=Your input 8182 lrecl VB file,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                                           
//SYSIN    DD *                                                 
  INREC IFTHEN=(WHEN=INIT,BUILD=(1,4,5,8178,JFY=(SHIFT=RIGHT),5))
  SORT FIELDS=(8102,80,CH,A)                                     
  OUTREC BUILD=(1,4,8183)

Thanks for responses. I also needed to sort on four fields in the first 120 bytes as well as fields in the last 80 byes. I resorted to accomplishing the task will a COBOL program.
