Yes, you can.

Can you tell us which sort product you are using (tell us the prefixes of the messages from a sort step)?

Can you show the Cobol code for the procedures?

Can you show the displacement/length of the fields used by the sort statement and the input/output procedures?

Can you tell us LRECL/RECFM of input and output files?

Why do you want to do this?

How much data is to be sorted?
Hope this helps,
