1) SORT FIELDS=(20,4,CH,D,10,3,CH,D)
OUTREC FIELDS=(7:20,4,C' FUTURE ',20,2,10,3,1Z,1,9,13,7,
This example illustrates how a fixed-length input data set
can be sorted and reformatted for output. The SORTIN LRECL
is 80 bytes.
The reformatted output records are fixed length with a
record size of 103 bytes. SOLRF (the IBM-supplied default)
is in effect, so unless the SORTOUT LRECL is specified or
available, it will automatically be set to the reformatted
record length of 103.
in the above example i have some doubts that
a) sort fields=(20,4,CH,D,10,3,CH,D) -what exactly it does
and this fields related to output record fields or input
b)outrec used to refprmat the records after sorting that
could please reply me as soon as possible

We can use PASS with permanent datasets also. THEN
Which is the condition in which we may use PASS (instead of
KEEP) with permanent data sets, while there is no need to
specify UNIT and VOL for them like temporary data sets (in
cas we use KEEP for permanent data sets) ?
Mainframes gets a text file that contains the name of the
