AS/400 Display File
Hi all! I have a display file in LIB001 and its having many screen files and Window file, I just wanted to add one more screen file in this case. 1. Do I need to compile the Display file? 2. If compile the display file, its linked with many RPG, CL programs, so obviously I have to compile all the programs. 3. How can I do this easily? I hope there are some options here. Surey

    1. Do i need to compile the Display file ?
    .
    Yes. You can't add record formats without compiling them.
    .
    2. If compile the Display File, its linked with many RPG, CL programs, So obviously i have to compile all the programs.
    .
    Why is it obvious? Are you going to change the record formats that are already in the file?
    .
    3. How can i do this easily.?
    .
    How can you do what easily? Compile the display file? Just run CRTDSPF like always.

    Each record of the display file has a seperate level indentifier. Programs check the record formats that are used in the program but not any others. Therefore, adding a format does't require recomile of the application programs/ Phil

    Use DSPPRGREF to see the record formats used in a program Use DSPFD to see the record formats in the display file

    If a record is new, it won't be in any programs yet; so DSPPGMREF won't show the relevant format ID. But, yes, "files" don't have format level IDs; only record formats have format level IDs. A new record format can't cause a format level check. -- Tom
