The REXX language doesn't contain a SORT instruction or function. If the data resides in an external dataset, then you need to invoke your site's sort program (DFSORT or SYNCSORT). The only other option is to write your own SORT routine using a standard sort algrithm (Bubble Sort or Quick Sort, for example).
