    When you look at object descriptions, you can determine when objects were saved. Now you can go into QHST for that time period and see what jobs were running and you should be able to get the job name.

    If you are unaware of a backup job name on your system, there is no way for us to know what the job is. As far as finding "details", what kind of details do you need to know? . Tom

    If you do not know job name or anything else I suggest checking the History log for messages CPC3704 and CPF3774 (DSPLOG MSGID(CPC3704 CPF3774)). That should give you the resulting messages from the Backup. Putting the cursor on the message and pressing F1 and than F9 will give you the Job Name that issued the messages. Modify the DSPLOG command so that you select the time period when the Backup was created.

    DSPLOG MSGID(CPC3704 CPF3774) select the time frame when the Backup Occurred. Verifying the Message details (F1 and F9) should give you the job name.

    If you are aware of the time period you can check for the logs to determine backup related messages
    DSPLOG PERIOD((220000 01072014))

    In above I have taken yesterday's date and time. You could see messages as below,

    10 objects saved from library QSYS.

    These messages have message ID CPC3722.

    You can do F1 and F9 to determine the job name.
