Sigh. How do you expect anyone to help you when you reject the answer to your problem with a statement like "I used this in the past, case was never a problem.".
I don't know what you think you did in the past, but CASE MATTERS! DFSORT does NOT treat A (X'C1') and a (X'61') the same - they are NOT EQUAL. So your INCLUDE statement does NOT have any matches in the SORTIN records you show which is why no records are included in SORTOUT.
When I changed your SORTIN records to all uppercase, I got this in SORTOUT:
PKG CREATE 7
CHECKED OUT 415
COMPONENTS DELETED 158
MEMBERS FROM PAT 0
MEMBERS FROM INT 0
So you can either use all uppercase as the input, or change the INCLUDE statement to check for case as appropriate. Alternatively, you could have DFSORT convert a copy of the fields to uppercase with INREC and TRAN=LTOU and then use OUTFIL INCLUDE with uppercase for the copied fields.
At any rate, you have to change something to get a non-empy output data set for the situation you describe. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - firstname.lastname@example.org
