    First, there is no way to "scan all the objects". Many objects can't be scanned at all. A *PGM object, for example, provides no object methods by which a scan can be done. Many other object types have the same restriction. Second, of the few object types that do allow some kind of 'scan', each object type requires a different method. You can't 'scan' *DTAARA objects the same way that you might 'scan' a *FILE object or a *USRSPC object. Further, you wouldn't 'scan' a *FILE object. You'd actually scan members of the file, and only certain subtypes of *FILEs have members. A *FILE object itself doesn't have much that can be 'scanned'. Usually, scanning implies looking through the data space of a *FILE object, and the members are where the data spaces are. It's possible that a *FILE object contains a field attribute named EMPDETAILS and that's what you're looking for, but that's a very different type of 'scan'. In short, the question isn't making much sense yet. Many more details need to be clarified. And, as CharlieBrowne said, the discussion should continue under the original question. I see that you added 'Physical Files' and 'AS400 physical file' tags to this question. You might discuss what those tags mean back in the original thread. For example, you might clarify if you need to search through data file members or source file members. And you might clarify if you're looking for "empdetails" in the file's data or in the file's attributes. Tom
