AS/400 shortcut commands
How can I view the existing shortcuts for as400 commands? I am asking this because many people have already created many shortcut commands on the as400 network that I am using. So I need to see the existing shortcuts. I know how to create a new shortcut but I do not know how to view the existing ones.

I figured out the answer myself.
You can view the User Options(that are the User created shortcuts) by pressing F16 on ‘Work with Members Using PDM’ screen. The screen that appears after pressing F16 displays all the existing shortcuts.



One thing to remember:

These user-defined PDM options are stored in a file on the system. Multiple copies of this file can exist, each one in a different library. The ones you are seeing may not be the same ones that someone else sees.

The default file name for storing these is QAUOOPT, and the default library for this file is QGPL. But copies of this file (possibly with different names) can exist in almost any other library on the system.

    If you don't know the libraries that may contain shortcut commands, you can enter DSPOBJD OBJ(*ALLUSR/*ALL) OBJTYPE(*CMD) Of course, one of our programmers likes to put shortcuts into QSYS (a bad idea) which does not show up with this command. Mike

    I think that the shortcuts are the PDM shortcuts. These can be stored on different files or different members ot the QUAOOPT file. I usually have my own personal copy cnnected to my user profile. That way I am sure??? that the shortcuts I use were not altered by someone else.

    The best method is to use the TAATOOL cmd PRTCHGIBM. Hopefully all of your modified and shortcut IBM commands have been put in one library, QGPL, or best yet a cmds mods lib that you put ahead of QSYS in QSYSLIBL
