RE: Finding members



fixed

 Aside from all of the other suggestions (which are good ones) there's a
mix-up on files and members.   A member is not a file.

"Members" is one of IBM's wonderfully great ideas that fell flat.  We have
to live with the consequences but the consequences are minor.  You've hit on
the worst consequence - how does one find a member?  Members are hard to
find because they are not objects like files and libraries and programs.

On the AS/400 I think its easier to think of things as being in object bags
instead of on  an object tree.

Thanks Bonnie...however, the file (as it's called on the hp) would actually
be a member on the iseries (MYLIB/MYFILE), and if my understanding is
correct (and that's truly said with caution), then you would not see the
member if you were using the WRKOBJ command...?
