Hello,

Good to hear you are feeling better. Sorry you were ill.

Which release of Syncsort is used on your system?
Hope this helps,

leon,

To find the SyncSort release information,run the below SyncSort job. On the top of the SYSOUT from the job run, you'll find the SyncSort version info like 'SYNCSORT FOR Z/OS.....'
//STEP1   EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN    DD *
//SORTOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN     DD *
  OPTION COPY
/*
BTW, DFSORT and SyncSort are competitive products and most of the syntax is similar in both the products, not forgetting the exclusive features in these products.

leon,

Frank is a DFSORT Developer and the job provided would work in shops having DFSORT; but the same may or may not work for you since your shop has a different product called SyncSort. But the same could be achieved thru alternative methods in SyncSort. Please post here the SyncSort release info. here

Leon,

I hope you're feeling better.

I'm a DFSORT developer. DFSORT and Syncsort are competitive products. I'm happy to answer questions on DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, but I don't answer questions on Syncsort.

Hi, Frank and All

I'm very happy I can run ICEtool today. everything is ok when I use the above jcl code.
thanks, Frank and all friends. but I still confuse why we can use ICETOOL in syncsort? as you
tell me. the ICETOOL is under dfsort. why? thx.

You are NOT using DFSORT's ICETOOL. You are using Syncsort's SYNCTOOL. Syncsort ships ICETOOL as an alias for SYNCTOOL so when you have Syncsort and use PGM=ICETOOL you get SYNCTOOL, not ICETOOL.

Note that DFSORT's ICETOOL is fully documented whereas AFAIK there is no documentation available for Syncsort's SYNCTOOL.

DATASORT has been available with DFSORT's ICETOOL since July, 2008. Syncsort copied the function later on.
