Considerations with an external SORT program upgrade for CA Panexec
Article ID: 77166
The customer is using SYNCSORT, not DFSORT. And they have a plan to upgrade it from v1.4 to 2.1. Does CA product execute the SORT program ? If YES, does it use the external SORT program(DFSORT/SYNCSORT and etc...) ?
Does CA product execute an external SORT program ?
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.
