Re: Compare and merge



fixed

Thanks a lot ! Never thought I'd say this : EAT THAT WDSc !

I was trying to find my modifs in WDSc with source,Filter view, Date...
Navigated to the first modification, pressed Ctrl W. Now how to get the next ligne with the same date ?! I had to repeat the source, filter etc step! Gave up and did it with SEU split screen ! You can search one date in the top member and another in the bottom member as well. I will remember MRGSRC the next time.

Hi David

May I suggest using option 55 in PDM - yes - PDM! You get a split SEU screen where YOU decide what gets merged. Nothing in WDSC or anywhere else gives you that ability that I know of.

I just used the merge source function for the first time.

I had to fix a bug on a programme currently undergoing modifications.
This meant that there were 3 versions of the RPG source :

The version in production, a version that a developper is currently
working on and my version.

I needed to update the production version and then copy my
modifications in the other developper's version.

To merge my modifications am I right in saying you need to download the
two sources into an iSeries project?

Anyway that's how I did it, then hit the button to insert all the
modifications. That was the production library version taken care of. I
was very impressed. I even found it hard to believe. So I uploaded the
modified (merged) source and compared it again with the version on the
i5. I guess I'll just have to trust it!

I then wanted to do the same with the other developper's version.
The compare took a long time and I got the message that there were too
many differences. It said to ignore the spaces or analyze separately
the structures. I see in the preferences under workbench/ comparaison I
can select ignore the spaces but I don't think that's going to make
much difference. How do I analyze only parts of the source ?

Now I have to go through all my modifications using the date and insert
them into the other source manually. It is rather delicate.

Any suggestions ?
