Of course that should suggest library QRPLOBJ, the "REPLACE(*YES) library", not the QRCL "Reclaim storage library". The QRCL## libraries are created by\for the RCLSTG feature to which object found outside a library are addressed, if the external object type requires the object should be in a permanent library... after which the data and object definitions can be referenced for recovery actions.

As to the question by the OP, I wonder what about the responses from the effectively identical question asked in Dec-2011 were lacking, for which a rehash of the topic would be necessary?
_"Subject: Create/Last Used Program Dates"_

In the following message from that thread, I had alluded to the ability to get the creation date from a previous version of the *PGM object, via restore from a backup; i.e. to get the creation date of that iteration of a recompile:

from the previous program object that it was replacing, but
thought I would ask.
