Oops. sorry, I should read more carefully.  I thought you meant every
module on the binding directory was bound.

Well, as with programs, I expect the highest version of an object in the
library list to be the correct one to use, so a combination of
populating the binding directory as I outlined in another response (with
our RBDBNDDIR command) and *DUPPROC, works well for us.

Cheers,

Martin.
