Hi,

I want to change the file structure in a PF which has no LF,  How can I indentifyall the impacted programs without using any utility. I believe i can do find string and get the list but copybooks may also have used in those programs, which could not be found right?

Please advice,

Thanks,
Dev

    Please clarify "without using any utility." That could eliminate everything other than visually inspecting all of the source code. (And even that could require a utility to display source for reading.) -- Tom

    If you are going to do a "find string" just do that over the source library where your copybook code is stored? But why not use a utility ?

    And if you are planning on using SEU to do your find string, that is a utility..

    Not right.

    If the search is over source code, any COPY members can also searched. If a hit on a COPY member indicates an impact through the copied source, references to the member can also be found by searching.

    DSPPGMREF might help .. it can be run for all the program objects in a library.. output can be directed to an outfile and then queried for your file.

    DSPPGMREF would probably be the best choice, but it's hard to tell if it's a "utility" that must be excluded. -- Tom
