On the report, find the lib name that the expanded file was created in.
Then DSPFD libname/filename
Another way to do the same thing is wrkf *all/filename and 5 each entry to view the attributes of the file.
I am guessing that you created the file in LIBA, but the DSPFD is looking at a different version over in LIBB.

Subject: [Newsletter] [COBOL400-L] Adding new field to DDS member
I have found the DDS member for the file.
I added the new field to it.
I recompiled it.
I also recompiled another DDS member that is associated with this one.
When I look at the DSPFD - it does not look like it changed. I compared it to the production file and they both look the same.
It still has the same number of fields.
I know I am missing something.
I appreciate your help.
