APPENDIX1.5.3 Procedure Division

An ASCII collated sort/merge operation can be specified in two ways:

In either case, alphabet-name must be associated with STANDARD-1 (for ASCII collating sequence) in the SPECIAL-NAMES paragraph.

For this sort/merge operation, the COLLATING SEQUENCE option takes precedence over the PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause.

If both the PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause and the COLLATING SEQUENCE phrase are omitted (or if the one in effect specifies an EBCDIC collating sequence), the sort/merge is performed using the EBCDIC collating sequence.
