But here the problem is Field3 occurs for two times. This is the sample layout I had given. In my copybook layout, few fields occurs 50 times like that. So it would be overhead to write below similar sort card line for 50 times to define each field occurrence in output file layout.
[01 EX-Field3 OCCURS 50 times
10 Field3 PIC X(04). ]
So could you please let me know if there is any simpler way to write data to above kind of array fields using SORT/SYNCSORT?
I would be grateful for your help. _________________ Thanks,
