At DFSORT Shop? Yes? - Determine your DFSORT function level.

Post by Anuj Dhawan » Tue Jul 23, 2013 8:04 pm

To determine which level of DFSORT functions you have available, look at message ICE201I in the //SYSOUT messages you receive from the DFSORT job shown below or from any successful DFSORT Job:

Code: Select all

//S1 EXEC PGM=ICEMAN 
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=* 
//SORTIN DD * 
RECORD 
/* 
//SORTOUT DD DUMMY 
//SYSIN   DD   * 
  OPTION COPY 
/* 
If you see:
  • ICE201I H RECORD TYPE: The H indicates you have the October, 2010 DFSORT functions (RESIZE, IFTRAIL, ACCEPT, ADDDAYS, DATEDIFF, TRAN=ATOE, KEYBEGIN, etc) and all of the earlier functions. This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 and z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026. You are completely up to date on DFSORT functional PTFs.
  • ICE201I G RECORD TYPE: The G indicates you have the November, 2009 DFSORT functions (JOINKEYS, TOJUL, TOGREG, WEEKDAY, etc) and all of the earlier functions. This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK51706 and z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK51707. You are behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.
  • ICE201I F RECORD TYPE: The F indicates you have the July, 2008 DFSORT functions (FINDREP, WHEN=GROUP, DATASORT, SUBSET, etc) and all of the earlier functions. This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90013 and z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90014. You are behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.
  • ICE201I E RECORD TYPE: The E indicates you have the April, 2006 DFSORT functions (PARSE, JFY, SQZ, SPLIT1R, etc) and all of the earlier functions. This function level corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UK90007. You are behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.
  • ICE201I 0 RECORD TYPE : The 0 indicates you do not have the July, 2008 or April, 2006 DFSORT functions. You are way behind on DFSORT functional PTFs. Ask your System Programmer to install z/OS DFSORT V1R10 PTF UK90025 or z/OS DFSORT V1R12 PTF UK90026.

    You may or may not have the Dec, 2004 DFSORT functions (IFTHEN, OVERLAY, SFF, UFF, etc), which corresponds to z/OS DFSORT V1R5 PTF UQ95214. Try using one of these functions - if you get errors trying to use it, then you don't even have the Dec, 2004 PTF installed.
