Which SORT product do you have?

Look at JOINKEYS. Lots of examples here and in the manuals, on the internet, etc

ASAP is a term that should never be used on a forum
replying is on voluntary base and our time availability
if You have time constraints a forum is not the best place to ask for help

What was the point of "reporting" my post?

Look in the DFSORT or SyncSort forums here for examples of JOINKEYS. You'rs is really simple, but solution depends on the product you are using, which you still haven't bothered to tell us.

If you'd taken the advice earlier, you'd have got to your solution already.

Yes, just look do what I've mentioned twice already. Find the most simple JOINKEYS you can. That'll be yours.

I want the sort card.

Unfortunately not always You can have what You want!
this is a help forum, not a provide me with a solution one

show what You have done, what problems You are facing, and somebody will be glad to help You.
Your want/gimme approach will not get You too much sympathy and even less help

what happened when You searched the forum ?
the examples are there and ready to run
yes... I checked :geek:

searching for joinkeys will provide what You want
cheers
