I've been using SYNCSORT for years, but only for simplistic sorting. Now, I'd like to take better advantage of the product by using it for reporting, but I'm finding the book hard to understand. Basically, I need to select SMF70 subtype 1 records, sort them by date/time, and print a report. The report would have one row for each record and includes, at a minimum, the date, time, and field SMF70LAC printed in the form mm/dd/yyyy, hh:mm:ss, and ###,###,##0.00. I would like the input to be from SORTIN, the sorted output (if required) to go to SORTOUT, and the report to go to SORTRPT. My requirement is much more complex than this, but if you can get me "kick started" with the above, I can do the rest.
Question: Is there a book somewhere like "Smart DFSORT Tricks", only for SYNCSORT?
Thanks in advance.
