SORTIN, not SYSIN, is used to specify the input files.  So your question doesn't make any sense.  If you want a meaningful answer, show the job you are using and/or explain what you are trying to do.

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT:  Getting Started".  It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols.  You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
