RE: Search OS/400 Physical Files



fixed

Vern, et al,

I think what Shannon is looking for and I for sure am, is a native i5/OS Search function that allows me to put in a character string or whatever and *ALL libraries, if I so desire, and have it search ALL files in all libraries, particularly source or physical files and have it function like the Search function in Windoz. I have entered STRPDM, I have pulled up a list of objects from all libraries, I have put in 25 in the option field of the first on the list (shouldn't have to do this if I want to search all objects in one or more libraries in the first place) and I pressed enter. I get "Option 25 not valid". So, I then tried WRKF. I say all files, all libs, PF. I get a list. I put in 25 in the option field of the first file, I get "Specified option number not allowed". I have *ALLOBJ and am a SECADM. So, I don't see ANYTHING that allows me to do a Windoz like search on all objects for a character string or anything like it. What am I missing?

Thanks,

Dave
