I should blame myself for the bad results..My apologies..
I edited input dataset for some reasons and forgot to revert it back.That is the reason for not getting desired output.

Due to my limited programming skills my thinking didn't go beyond adding seq numbers.
I was not aware of something called restart parameter in seq numbers.

But I learned a thing today which helped me a lot.Thanks a lot.

No problem.

SORT these days is a huge and powerful tool. It is worth investing some time in. You can't do it all at once, but a little now and again.

One thing I'd suggest is that you look at Symbols/SYMNAMES.

These allow you to give a "name" to fields and constants, rather than the start,length, and hard-coding multiple values.

There are some examples here if you search for SYMNAMES.
