I have "coded" your data up so that it now aligns. Please do it yourself next time. I got rid of your 'BOLDing' as it is not respected within code tags and you made no mention as to why some stuff was in bold and some was not.

What are you trying to achieve with your sort? A description please and what was wrong with the output you got?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hi Nic,

i need the sum of the 'emp sal' (47-55 columns) with department wise for an employee, but when i tried with this sort card,

//SYSIN DD *
SORT FIELDS=(2,13,CH,A,13,5,CH,A)
SUM FIELDS=(47,9,ZD)
/*

i am getting only two records with employee.

Please learn to use the code tags - as previously requested.

Why are you sorting on columns 2 - 14 then 13 - 17?

Hi Nic,

Sorry for the mistake. I have changed my sort card as below, i got the required output with dept wise sal, thanks for your support.

//SYSIN DD *                     
 SORT FIELDS=(2,13,CH,A,36,5,CH,A)
 SUM FIELDS=(47,9,ZD)             
/*

Good to hear that it is doing the right thing now. Also, thanks for using the code tags! But...one more overall comment: the title of the topic "Need help on SORT" is totally useless! The fact that you are posting in the sort section of the forum denotes that you are, probably, needing help. The topic title should relate to the kind of problem you are having.
