Yes, you must define a Select and an SD entry. 
Although The compiler ignores the "assign" 
portion of the statement (you'll see this in 
your compile list) it still must be present.

Subject: [COBOL400-L] question on sortwork file for internal sort...


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 on 
this topic?
