Use OUTFIL BUILD with the slash operator (/), which allows the creating of multiple outputs from a single input record.
 OUTFIL BUILD=(C'TEXT FOR LINE 1',
               /,
               C'TEXT FOR LINE 2')


Should get you

TEXT FOR LINE 1
TEXT FOR LINE 2


Then replace the literals with the positions you want from your input data.

Not possible by JCL. Perhaps using your sort product for which BillyBoyo has given you the gist.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
