Mary,

I just know enough to be dangerous here is a sample:

CL Code:

FMTDTA     INFILE((NLLLIB/EXPSUMPF)) +
             OUTFILE(NLLLIB/EXPSUMT) +
             SRCFILE(NLLLIB/SRCPNC) SRCMBR(PRD71901) +
             OPTION(*NOCHK *NOPRT *NODUMP)

Expsumpf is input file,expsumt is output sorted file,prd71901 is a txt type
that defines the sort.

Prd71901.txt Code:

HFILE     13A         X
FNC  14  15                       EXSTNO
FNC  31  32                       EXTTRR
FNC   3   8                       EXPNO1
FNC  11  13                       EXCOVC
FDC   1 111                       RCD

First H spec defines total length
F specs define fields by position number in file and field names.
NC and DC beat me.

It does work though.
You would use expsumt as input to RPG program.

HTH
