Any suggestions why it is so? Also, let me know it is possible with IDCAMS? _________________ Arr Bee

You probably need to specify a RECFM and LRECL for the SYSUT1 DD DUMMY that matches your SYSUT2 data set. For example:
//SYSUT1 DD DUMMY,RECFM=FB,LRECL=80
Note that this might work without specifying RECFM and LRECL in some shops because the values are being defaulted (e.g. by SMS). But in your shop (and in mine), you need to specify attributes for DUMMY that match those attributes for your output data set. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - firstname.lastname@example.org
