I tried the following variation and it worked fine.

Code: Select all

//SYSIN    DD *           
  SORT FIELDS=COPY        
  OUTREC FIELDS=(1,40,    
                49,8,     
                65,212)   
Thanks :D

Hi All,

I asked the DBA about this issue and got to know that the DBXX region was changed and we were not informed about it. So changing the DBXX region in the JCL, the load was successful.
