Question: 

Why am receiving CAY6592 REQUIRED ‘SORT|MERGE|OPTION COPY STATEMENT NOT SPECIFIED and the SYSIN DD statement is present?

 

Answer:

CA JCLCheck r12.0 now supports control card checking for DFSORT and SYNCSORT.   The CAY6592 REQUIRED ‘SORT|MERGE|OPTION COPY STATEMENT NOT SPECIFIED  message may be valid for the following conditions;

  1. If your SYSIN DD file member is missing
  2. ·        If you are creating the control cards in a previous step as data file and using the file as input in the SYSIN DD

CA JCLCheck must be able to open and read the SORT control cards in the SYSIN DD statement in order to process the SORT statements.

 

 

As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA JCLCheck if you have further questions.
