Time Stamp Issues

Two questions about time stamp: 1. Is there a way to copy members/files etc so that the new member/file will still have the original time stamp (change date etc.) 2. Is there a way to update the member/file change date/time to a specific date/time (without actually saving it) ? thanks !!

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

and also:

how can I update the TEXT leaving the CHANGE DATE/TIME unchanged ??

=================================================

If you could do as you ask, you would be invalidating the audit value of the timestamps. Do you really expect instructions on how to circumvent system auditing to be handed over to you in a public forum?

    The "Change date/time" on the object description (DSPOBJD)is the timestamp for any change to the object. If you do a CPYF to a new file or a CRTDUPOBJ to a new file, it will result in the current date and time for the new object. When you change the text of a file, the object timestamp changes, but the member timestamp will not (DSPFD *MBRLIST). The member timestamp changes when the member changes. For a source file (CRTSRCPF), each record has a date stamp in a field named SRCDAT. When a source file is copied, the default is to retain the record date stamps. This can be changed using the CPYF or CPYSRCF and specifying values in the SRCOPT and SRCSEQ keywords. If you know how to program in MI (the OS/400 "assembly language"), you can probably change the date and time of the object to any value, but there is no OS/400 command to do that.
