Don't think so, Al, but I use DSPPGMREF PGM(*ALL/*ALL) OUTPUT(*OUTFILE)
OBJTYPE(*ALL) on a nightly basis and have three logicals built on that, one of
which uses the Referenced Object as a key.

Is there an IBM command that tells me other direction from DSPPGMREF?
I would key in some command (I am making this up <G>) like
DSPCALLME ORD561

and it would print a report like DSPGMREF that tells me what programs call
ORD561

DSPPGMREF tells me what program objects are called down 1 level
I sure would like a variant that shows me a particular kind of program object
down more than 1 level in an indented tree structure
I imagine there are shareware solutions out there

Currently my users get ORD561 report every time they do shipping documents
ORD595 & ORD596 which I am told comes from ORD590 menu option, and they want
me to modify ORD561 PRTF overrides & I am having a hard time tracing where
that is in the ORD590 flow, so either the users are mistaken or I am missing
something.

The menu calls ORD590C CLP
ORD590C calls ORD590 RPG which is a rather large program
ORD590 calls ORD591C CLP for each set of shipping documents
ORD591C OverPRTF's ORD595O & ORD596O & calls ORD591 ORD592 ORD593
ORD592 & ORD593 are alternative ways to process shipping documents & both of
them call ORD595 & ORD596 which are two kinds of shipping documents

I continue to look into other stuff that gets called but so far have not dug
up the buried treasure of where ORD561 is called & there is another player
ORD597 that I need to locate also because ORD590 is normal shipping & there
is also a path involving reprinting of corrected shipping documents

I also wonder how many layers deep a call structure is prudent to be taken in
concert with tools normally found in a typical 400 shop.

I expect that I could do a DSPPGMREF *ALL to an *OUTFILE then try to navigate
the resulting mess via Query or even SQL ... show me all primary hits with
this program name, then all secondary hits on the primary hitees.

I thought I would ask first ... there may already be a DSPCALLME out there
with some other name that I have overlooked.
