The "JCL" did not give you the error; the Syncsort program gave you the error. The message is pretty simple: sort programs require an input data set to sort or copy, it is usually specified by a DD statement with DD name SORTIN.

But the JCL you used did NOT do the copying - it was the program specified in the JCL.

JCL stands for JOB control language, not some-utility, e.g. SORT, control language.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
