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

I find the easiest way to do the following command:
DSPOBJD Lib/Object *objtype
Then I look for the value under “Change/Usage information:” where a line “Change date/time:” shows you the date and time the object last change… That is updated, created, Change its ownership or authority, etc… that is Changed date/time of ANY changes.

I hope that helps

    I find the easiest way to do the following command: DSPOBJD Lib/Object *objtype The DSPOBJD command will report the Last Change Date of the object but not necessarily the content of the object. For example, a database file will contain a member. DSPOBJD would report a change to the SIZE() attribute of the file, but it would not reflect changes to records in the member if you simply run UPDDTA against it. It's necessary to distinguish between the object description that DSPOBJD is concerned with and data that may be within an object. Tom
