Or, Jim, if you don't know that the file is in your library list, use *ALLUSR instead of *LIBL - and be prepared to watch the grass grow.

There used to be a nifty tool that did this, but seems it used some MI stuff and would not work in recent releases. FNDMBR, if I recall.

DSPFD *LIBL/*ALL TYPE(*MBRLIST) to an outfile. Then query the outfile.

Subject: Finding a member in a file, not knowing the file it's in!

Does anyone know of a way to find a specific member name in a file?
Trick is I don't know the file it could be in. Not to mention I've only been
here for about 3 months and still finding my way around the maze.
For some reason we have lost the source to a program that has not been compiled
since 2002 and I need to see if some one archived it into another source file
before deleting it.



I've looked at WRKOBJPDM and doing an option "25" but that only scans the date
in the member (all I care about is finding the member name).
Plus the WRKOBJPDM does not put its list to a file so I'd have to go the API
route (or DSPOBJD for *file and then DSPFD for *mbrlist), which I might have to
anyway, just to get a listing of all members in a file, of OBJATR('PF-SRC').



Thanks for any suggestions you might have.
