Maybe someone will have any answer for you, but having done both mainframe
and AS/400 COBOL, I've never seen internal (or external for that mattter)
sorts done on the AS/400. It's just not a common concept on AS/400's.

I am busy writing my source filter program for converting COBOL programs
from the mainframe to ILE/COBOL. Some questions please....

1) Is it necessary to define a SELECT for the sortwork file for an internal


2) If #1 is yes, could someone provide an example of the SELECT and FD for
the sortwork file?

3) If anyone out there is familiar with the differences between mainframe
and iSeries concerning this, is there anything else I need to be aware of
this topic?
