Actually, coding SORTWKs in the JCL is not a (Sync or DF) Sort requirement. Allowing Sort to dynamically allocate necessary SORTWORK space is generally considered more efficient, as the SORTWORK space is acquired "as needed" and you avoid scenarios where disk space is potentially over-allocated by the user. _________________ Regards,
