If YES, does it use the external SORT program(DFSORT/SYNCSORT and etc...) ?

Does CA product execute an external SORT program ?

Environment

z/OS

Resolution

CA Panexec does not use the SORT program. But, you can receive a data as the system sort file(SYSOUT, SORTWK01, SORTWK02 and SORTWK03 DD).
You need it only when CA Easytrieve or another program uses the system sort.
