How to force use of MFSORT64 as default when calling MFSORT (normal default is MFSORT32)


Resolution

Before running the sort command, JCL or script, run the command cobmode


This will return what the "Effective Default Working Mode" is  : for example the command will return "Effective Default Working Mode: 32 bit"


To set this to the required mode, use the command export COBMODE=32 or export COBMODE=64


By setting the required mode, the MFSORT for that mode will be selected when MFSORT is called or run.


Running MFSORT32 or MFSORT64 directly will work, instead of just running MFSORT and allowing the default cobmode to be used.
