In Hawkeye, I came across the file use RPG-File...

This describes if the file is used as an externally described Data structure.... with the use of such data structures can i Read/Update/Add/Delete info in files....

Is there any way to make sure what exactly program is doing (Read/Update/Add/Delete) with that file thru this tool...w/o opening the program...as I have 150 files for which i want to find this info

Thanks,

Nutan.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

An externally defined data structure just means that you have a set of fields in the program with the same structure as the file. You must have F-specs to define update – add and/or input. SQL can also access the file.. and is frequently used with data strctures. I don’t know if Hawkeye can detect all SQL uses of files. The program could also call another program to pass the data structure for update/insert.

HAWKEYE does NOT pick up all SQL references to a file.
