I get to DSPPGMREF via GO CMDREF because I sometimes forget the precise command string. I have sent *ALL BPCS software to an *OUTFILE then use Query/400 to see just the data I am interested in, such as given a particular file, list all the BPCS programs that mess with it.

Warning: This is an OS/400 tool that does not get 100% of what BPCS is doing. There is a concept in which software can use some variable and plug in the name of the software object and what library at execution time. A lot of BPCS uses this concept, which DSPPGMREF not see and not show on the report, so you can get an incomplete picture.

For example, suppose you using more than one human language on your system. English Spanish French Portuguese Chinese or whatever Different people running the same software on the same system but seeing the screens in their language will in fact be getting parallel software objects that may be accessed using soft coding that DSPPGMREF cannot get at.

See if you have XREF in your BPCS collection and if it is working for you.
XREF is supposed to also get at the soft coded stuff that DSPPGMREF cannot get at. However, depending on your BPCS version, there are a mountain of security problems with XREF.

We are BPCS 405 CD MM on AS/400 V5R1

Hi All,

Carlos, execute the following command: dsppgmref bp61o/csh305d
and you'll have a screen/spool file with the info you need.

See the example below (i don't reproduce the entire command's output
because our OS400 is in portuguese)
