I didn't show the JCL because it adds nothing. But as you weren't capable to understand, here it is:

Is this the normal behaviour?
Actually, since it is extremely unusual to use SYSOUT for a SORTOUT, without posting the JCL as you did it would have taken MUCH longer to figure out the issue.it shows that there were no need for the JCL here.
