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

I don’t think thee is a way to see who made the actual change to a line of code unless you are using some change management software. About the only thing is you could do is use the DSPOBJ command and see who compiled the object last.

    One option would be to journal the source files.

    Just an idea: I have a kind of an audit program with the help of API "QIBM_QDB_OPEN". With this kind of "audit", I just want to learn who and when anyone open a source file member for edit, view or copy. If you are interested in this kind of solution, just say it and I'll provide you with the code.

    Just a small correction: "QIBM_QDB_OPEN" is an "exit point" not an API.

    1. dspjrn for the user/date and time (if journaled and recent)
    2. dspobjd for last compiled information
    3. Journal the source file, write a program that processes the journaled entries and capture changes to a physical file
