Hi,

I would like to do a sort such that the order of input records shouldn't be changed. (copying one file data into anoterh file).

Thanks,

read in the DFSORT manuals about the COPY function

or if You are really SORTING and want to preserve the sequence for records with the same <sort key> about the OPTION EQUALS

or use a copy utility such as IEB/ICEGENER
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hariprasad K,

Use the following DFSORT JCL
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=SORT       
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*         
//SORTIN   DD DSN=Your input file,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=Your output file,
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
//            SPACE=(CYL,(X,Y),RLSE)
//SYSIN    DD *                 
  SORT FIELDS=COPY             
//*
