The outfile from DSPOBJD does have a field ODOBSZ, which used to be always
object size, but it is defined as a 10.0 field, so it does not correctly
objects that are 10 gigabytes or more. 

To calculate object size, multiply field ODBPUN (bytes per unit) times field
ODSIZU (size of unit).

As long as all your objects are 9,999,999,999 or less, you're okay. However,
soon as you get an object that is 10 gig, the ODOBSZ will produce the
9,999,999,999, and you're be in error by the difference.

BTW, if you use QRYDOCLIB to determine size of documents in Shared Folders,
has the same problem but goes only 8.0 (I think). The solution there is to
DISKTASKS, or if continuing to use QRYDOCLIB, retrieve the object size from
object description if you find any documents with size 99,999,999 in the
QRYDOCLIB outfile.

Original Message
Are there any circumstances when the product of ODBPUN and ODSIZU is not the
same as ODOBSZ? This is the field I've always relied on for object size.
