BPCS comes with a module known as XREF.

It can be used to generate where used (most) all fields in all files by all
programs, into what I call "door stop" reports. We do not use it because
SSA tech support told us the only way to make it work was to change the
ownership of BPCS files to everyone is a master security officer.

Instead I have one of those DSP cross-index to *OUTFILE created by GO
CMDREF, then use query/400 on object name to find out where it is
referenced. When you run that, be sure to include all libraries of all
software vs. BPCS, which may be more libraries than just where the files
are. We have some source code outside the standard library list.

This not help much with respect to what the heck those fields are used for,
what all the codes mean, and which ones we can use for other purposes,
without breaking BPCS. To answer that, you need either one of the good BPCS
reference manuals, or one of the good tech support places.

I said "(most) all".

The system kind of breaks down when the references are "soft coded", where
some software involved is specified at execution time, and not "hard coded"
in what can be REF'd.
