Can OS/400 change an object's update date? I have an audit issue because fields ODSRCD and ODLDAT in a *PGM object appear to be changed, while the application has not changed and we don´t even have the source code.

    The way I read you questions is that the data in two fields have changed. Fields are not an Object. The file is the Object that would have a changed date if the format of the file changes, not data in a field.

    Also note that even id you do not have source code for a file, you can still make changes to the fields within the file by using SQL ALTER TABLE.

    If that does not answer your inquiry, please give us more information.

    There is an API that can change the Objects without recompiling: QLICOBJD. I used a program that could change the source reference in the program objects (CHGPGMSRC). Handy when you reorganize your source members/files

    Like the others mentioned there are a few ways it may have happened. You mention you do not have the source code. Is it possible that the vendor you got the code from had an update?
    Is it possible they were changed by a WRKQRY or WRKQMQRY?
    A little more info where you are seeing these changes regarding these two fields would help us give a better answer.

    We had a similar situation where someone redefined a few fields in a query's output file and caused issues with some of our other programs that used that for input. Check where this files data is coming from.
