Well, based on your brief description, you could use a DFSORT job like the following:

Code: Select all

//S1    EXEC  PGM=SORT                                            
//SYSOUT    DD  SYSOUT=*                                          
//SORTIN DD DSN=...    DASD input file      
//SORTOUT DD DSN=...   tape output file   
//SYSIN    DD    *                                                
  OPTION COPY                                   
If you need more specific help, give more details.
