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

If you are trying to find objects using i-series commands like DSPFD you will only be able to see file that your profile allows.

    In the IFS (PC Like files) or in AS/400 Native Libraries.

    Why do you think there are hidden files?

    I am new to AS/400. I don't think there is some option to hide a file. Rather you can assign different authorities to object. Sorry if I am wrong.

    What file are you looking for, a system file or a user created file? Do you know the library? If you do and still cannot see the file then it's an authority problem.

    There is no hidden files concept in AS/400. 

    Instead you might be having authority issue. 

    If you have proper authority and if you still cant able to view file in AS/400 library, Maybe you should consider posting your problem in detail.

    Tq All for your Answer. But I really don't how I find this file in the library. For example like this.
    Library      Owner           Disk        1000 bytes   Change     Use     
    AKKLIB      YANTI          6.65       148433498.1   01/03/13   08/03/13
    AKPPLIB    YANTI           6.60       147343560.7   20/01/13           

    For the example, I have 2 library : AKKLIB and AKPPLIB
    The AKKLIB if I list, I found that library.
    But If I list AKPPLIB, I din't found it.
    O... yeah... just info, I used PRTDSKINF to create system Information. And I user Qsecofr to PRTDSKINF command.

    MAybe ... somebody can help me..
    How.. I cant find this library???
    Because this library so used big harddisk.

    Tq...

    Best Regards

    What does that mean? How are you trying to list it? Is there an error? If so, what is the message ID?

    There are four general possibilities. First, you are not authorized to the library, so you are not allowed to access it. (It is a "library", not a "file".) Second, the library was deleted or renamed since PRTDSKINF was run. Third, you are using an outdated version of the RTVDSKINF *OUTFILE; make sure you run RTVDSKINF and use the latest output when you run PRTDSKINF. Fourth, the library needs to be reclaimed; run RCLSTG and check the library as well as library QRCL after RCLSTG finishes. (RCLSTG will require restricted state and may run for many hours; run it first with ESTIMATE(*YES) to see if statistics are available.)

    In your original post it's a file you are looking for, in you last you ask how to find the library.

    I would try running WRKOBJ OBJ(*ALL/MYFILE) OBJTYPE(*FILE)
    or WRKOBJ OBJ(*ALL/MYFILE) OBJTYPE(*LIB) under QSECOFR.

    I you find what you are looking for, check the authority or object info to see if there are any restrictions by user.

    PRTDSKINF shows data collected when RTVDSKINF is run.

    You maybe looking at obsolete data. 

    You will want to run RTVDSKINF and then PRTDSKINF .. here is a site that might help.

    Sorry, TheRealRaven already gave you the info on RtvDskInf and PrtDskInf.  Consider my post redundant.

    Try doing a DSPOBJD to an outfile, and then query for that file with SQL.
