I don’t “think” so. At least, I’ve never seent it done. You can DSPFD and DSPFFD and get a lot of information about field and indicator usage, etc. but I’ve only heard of reconstructing CL programs from the object. Nothing else.

errr … search for Alex Nubla RTVDBSRC

    There is no native command to recover a DDS source. I do not know of any tool that can do the job. If you're going to do it yourself, DSPFD and DSPFFD commands can be of help but they won't give you all the information you need. Validation keywords is an example of that. For full information, you need to use the Retrieve Display File Description API (QDFRTVFD). However, prepare yourself for 59 pages of complex data. The manual is "Database and File System API". Good luck!
