Need help on SORT untility

Postby vinoth124 » Thu May 20, 2010 5:06 pm

Hi,

Currently I am using the below mentioned format to sort my dataset. I would like to know is there is any other SORT untility will perform the same action with less time when compare to this option...

XXPS010 EXEC PGM=SORT
//PS010.SORTIN DD DSN=Dataset.G0001V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0002V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0003V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0004V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0005V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0006V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0007V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0008V00,
// DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=Dataset.G0009V00,
// DISP=SHR
XXSORTOUT DD DSN Dataset.SORT,
XX VOL=(,,,99),
XX DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
XX UNIT=CART,
XX LABEL=RETPD=9,
XX DCB=(&DSCB,RECFM=FB)

Note : I am sort the data with some condition mentioned in the control card.

Thanks,
Vinoth

Hello,

You have not posted anything someone could use to help you. . .

Why do you think it takes too long? How much time does it take? How many records and of what size are being read/sorted/written?

Is there some reason you did not post the sort control statements and the informational output from an execution?

The biggest part of getting help from the forum is for you to provide sufficient info . . .
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Even if there is, but if 'that is not installed at your shop' - what's the use to look for such a utility?

so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
