RE: Find files in any library



fixed

I accidentally deleted this thread conversation, so maybe I'm missing the bigger picture here, but if this path interests you, check the authority on the logical QADBXFIL. I created a service program that would search for files using this table. When I first put it into production, I had authority issues while using the physical file QADBXREF. In the end, I somehow found that the logical file was not as restricted in authority. *PUBLIC has USER DEF authority, so it's possible someone at this company modified it at some point. It was enough for me to use it.

SELECT * FROM QADBXREF WHERE DBXFIL = 'YOURFILENAME' and DBXATR = 'PF'
ORDER BY 1

Better?

Worse!
All database information is stored in tables beginning with QADB* and are not accessible for everybody (programmer authority is not enough!) and this is good.
Catalog views (starting with SYS*) that provide information about the database are generated in schema QSYS2 and accessible for everybody.

Yeah, I missed word.

SELECT * FROM QADBXREF WHERE DBXFIL = 'YOURFILENAME' and DBXATR = 'PF'
ORDER BY 1

Better?

Please read the OP's post thoroughly.

Just a question, do you need to use SQL? Are you attempting to write a
program with this information? I ask because if not, the use
WRKOBJPDM and filter the list.

Shift F5. Put *FILE in Object Type, Put PF-DTA in Object attribute.

As for SQL, we kinda need to know what system version you are using.

Anyone have any idea how to find files in any library using SQL?

I'm used to having a wealth of information available in system views
in various other database platforms but can't seem to find what
works for
the
AS400.

I tried "select * from syscat.tables where tabname=tabletofind" but
apparently that doesn't exist in the AS400's flavor of DB2.
Additionally SYSIBM.SYSTABLE doesn't seem to exist either.

Thanks!
