Hi everyone,

//JOB STATEMNT
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN1 DD DSN=******.FINANCE.EMP,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD DSN=*****.BACKUP.EMP,DISP=MOD
//SYSIN DD *
MERGE FIELDS=(5,2,CH,D)
/*
//


RECORDS IN FINANCE.EMP
001 cse 1005
002 ece 1111
008 mec 1007
014 cse 1222
077 aaa 1453
088 sss 1000
015 mmm 1005

instead of having everybody guessing why don' You start by telling us what error You received ...

most probably if You look at Your input You will find out that it is not in sequence as required by a MERGE application
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

With the sample you show, Enrico has your answer. For MERGE, the data has to be in sequence on the key. If data is not in sequence, you SORT.

you also have 2 sortout ddnames - you can only have one. (You can have more than one but all but one will be ignored - I will leave it to you to research which one will be used). An why do you have DISP=MOD on your SORTOUT? Do you really want to add data to what is already in that dataset?

The sort manual has a whole chapter devoted to the JCL requirements that you need - read it, along with the JCL manual.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards
Nic

gowthamgyaa,

You need to show us the error message you got or you can look it up your self which is pretty much self explanatory. Here is the manual for checking the error messages
