Hi sumana.jayaram and welcome to the Forums,

It's not clear what is being asked. To get better help from the forum it's good to describe your problem well. Better you show the actual code. Please use BBcode Tags when you post the actual Sort card.

Ask this to them who have created the "requirement Document" . . .

This could be your sort card.
Code:

  SORT FIELDS=(6,10,CH,A,1,2,CH,A)

Assumed both are character fields.
In my assumption, what they might be telling is... first sort on the field
start with postion 6... and then SORT on the field starting postion 1.

You need to send a query to the person who has raised this task.

Thank you Natarajan.. This is what I wanted ! Smile but I guess the second parameter should be the length of the field ..and so it will be

Code:

  SORT FIELDS=(6,5,CH,A,1,2,CH,A)

sumana.jayaram,

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:

www.ibm.com/servers/storage/support/software/sort/mvs/srtmpub.html
