  HEADER1=(3:'OPTION COPY',/,                           
           3:'OUTFIL FNAMES=(FILE1,FILE2),SPLIT1R=',JP1)

You have Syncsort not DFSort. Syncsort does not have JPn.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Syncsort does support SPLIT1R. . .

If you show a bit of sample input data and the output you want when this data is used, someone may have a sugestion.
Hope this helps,

What I was looking to accomplish was, I like to build & execute SQL Query on run time for different regions,i.e query remains the same but just changing the Highlevel qualifier. I like to pass the value for "xxxx" thru SET in the JCL. This can be achieved thru DFSORT by using OUTFIL & JPn but unable to find a solution using SYNSORT since my current shop uses "SYNCSORT FOR Z/OS 1.4.0.1RI".

SELECT * FROM xxxx.EMPLOYEE

let me know if it is still unclear

Thanks,
Raj.

Hello,

It will help if you post more complete info. What is the jcl you intend to submit (please include all of the jcl, sort control statements, and explain what should be the output of your front-end process.
Hope this helps,

Thank you Scherrer
ok, more info..

Below code would have worked if my shop would have had DFSORT. Pls let me know how it needs to be tweaked for SYNCSORT..

// SET REGION='TEST'                           
//*
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=SORT,PARM='JP1"&REGION"'   
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                         
//SORTIN   DD *                               
//SORTOUT  DD SYSOUT=*                         
//SYSIN    DD *                               
  SORT FIELDS=COPY                             
  OUTFIL REMOVECC,NODETAIL,                   
  HEADER1=(3:'SELECT * FROM',/,               
           3:JP1,'.EMPLOYEE',/,               
           3:'FOR FETCH ONLY WITH UR;')       
//*                                           


OUTPUT:
SELECT * FROM
TEST.EMPLOYEE
FOR FETCH ONLY WITH UR;


Pls let me know if this info helps..

Thanks in advance..

That is fine..
But there is only one high-level qualifier to the table name. High-level qualifier is the variable field:
i.e TEST.<TABLE-NAME>
