Re: Search OS/400 Physical Files



fixed

Dave Dave Dave!!

Look at PDM option 25 - go to WRKOBJPDM, then F17 to subset it - not much different than picking some of the options in Windows search - BTW i find Windows search in recent versions to be terrible - nothing as good as in 98 - ok - once you have a list of physical files you want, put 25 on the first one and press F13 - then hit enter - put in the search criteria - it is maintained throughout ALL the files you selected - no repeating - none of the stuff you are complaining about.

Also, look at FNDSTRPDM - it has lots of options and is the engine behind option 25.

Please!!!

Then come back and tell me how bad it is!

Take care my friend

Did a WRKF but don't find any FIND command on one of its screens. I HOPE you
don't mean put some indicator beside EACH file that displays in the list and
then go into that file and use a FIND. That's WAYYYYYY to old world.

Guys, a modern OS has to have modern functions. Even though I HATE to say
this, look at how Windoz does the SEARCH..., you tell it what libraries you want
to look in and it allows you to find a character string and/or a file type
ANYWHERE on the machine NOT by putting some parm beside EACH file and putting in
a FIND criteria while editing or browsing each file; how antiquated.
