Re: Need to get quick database member list for multimember files



fixed

Ah - I get it - actually, those are not considered the same as data files - so they won't show up.

There is a distinction between these "flat" files (pre-DDS?) and true data files - with DDS or DDL.

For example, you can redirect output from an ls command in QShell to a flat file but not to one created from DDS.

I'm probably off some on the details, but that's generally what I've seen - non-DDS PFs have no structure - no external format. Only what is imposed on them internally in RPG and maybe COBOL.

Interesting though that a PF created by CRTPF with no DDS source member doesn't register in the list.

Hmm! :) Are you sure you wanted to say this in this way?

Hardest thing to find is the thing that isn't there!

In database terminology "member" is replaced by "partition"
SYSPARTITIONSTAT has a 10 character object name of SYSPSTAT
