Hello,

First - do not code using/giving in the same program - this just wastes resources.

Look at your SELECT for the file named in the SD. Usually this will be someting like:
SELECT MY-SORT-FILE ASSIGN TO UT-S-SORTFILE.
The JCL i use has //SORTWK01 DD UNIT=. . .
SORTFILE is not in the JCL.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
