DFSORT INCLUDE Output file order getting changed

Post by karupps » Tue Dec 13, 2016 6:49 pm

When we use INCLUDE option the order from the input file is getting changed while we generate the output file.

Is this existing issue in any of the lower version?

Well that is a completely ridiculous assertion, which is entirely incorrect.

If you want to know what is wrong, show your full SORT cards, your SYSOUT for the step, representative sample input which shows the issue, expected output, and output obtained.
