RC is possible in SORT?

Postby Jegan R » Thu Nov 12, 2009 1:47 am

Hi,

we have a Requirement like this:

we have to remove duplicates from a file based on the key using SUM FIELDS=NONE,XSUM and if there are no duplicates , we need to set return code as 01.

How it is possible through SORT? we ned to check SORTXSUM file for empty condition?..

SYNCSORT we are using.. in Pgm i am using normal SORT like :
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=SORT,PARM='NULLOUT=RC4'
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN DD DSN=any file,DISP=SHR
//SORTOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
OPTION COPY
/*

But, by this method i can set only RC=4.. I need to set RC = 1 , IS this possible in this way or thru any other method?

Hello,

Not that i'm aware of in the sort. Possibly one of the Syncsort "pro"s will have a more definitive answer.

Why will the rc4 not work as well as an rc1?
Hope this helps,

Hello,

I dont know why its not possible..
Because of decisions made by the author/vendor.

Suggest you plan on using the utility "as is" rather than making the decision a show-stopper.
Hope this helps,
