Hi All,

I am having a seqential file having LRECL=80 & RECFM=FB. My requirement is, If starting from position 1, Length = 3, I am having Char. "EOF" I need to set the return code = 4. How can I do this using SORT.

Thanks.

Vineet,

It would be nice if you can post a feed back for the prior solutions you got. You ask a question receive a solution and then disappear until you have a new question. How hard is it to just provide feedback if the solution worked or not?

Any way here is the solution you looking for. Use the following DFSORT/ICETOOL JCL which will give you the desired results
//STEP0100 EXEC PGM=ICETOOL               
//TOOLMSG  DD SYSOUT=*                   
//DFSMSG   DD SYSOUT=*                   
//IN       DD *                           
BLAH                                     
BLUE                                     
EOF                                       
RED                                       
GREEN     
EOF                               
//OUT      DD SYSOUT=*                   
//TOOLIN   DD *                           
  COUNT FROM(IN) HIGHER(0) RC4 USING(CTL1)
//CTL1CNTL DD *                           
  INCLUDE COND=(1,3,CH,EQ,C'EOF')   
//*
