I have a question and submitted long back. But till now i didn’t get any reponse.
Task: If there is any change in the length of a field or a new field added into the existing file, we need to do some Impact Analysis which is time consuming.So i thought of developing a utility for that.
Doubt:I’ll just input the file name,It should search from the Library List and should display all the programs, that file is being used.
Actually it should search for the file that i have inputed and if it has any dependent files, then taking those dependent files also it should search and should display all the programs.
I dont want to use DSPPGMREF because then i have to check for every program whether that file is present or not.This would be again time consuming.
I also dont want to use FNDSTRPDM, as we may not know how many Source Physical Files are present for each library.Also this would be again time consuming.
If it is possible through an API also its fine.
If any one knows about this please respond.It would of great help if you do so.Thanks in advance…………….
