To amplify on Alan's statement, program objects are different than office documents. An office document is modified over and over again and the modified document is passed from place to place, and in that situation an original creation date has some meaning. The program object is not just modified each time you make a program change. Instead, the program object is recreated every time you compile and the old object is tossed away. So the concept of an original date isn't applicable.


Nope. Object is destroyed or renamed and put into QRCL when complied but
nothing that tacks it back to a previous version.

My boss is asking me if there is any way to determine when a program was
originally created. DSPOBJD's creation date is the last date on which it
was compiled. It doesn't seem reasonable to me that the compiler/system
would keep track of the original date from the previous program object that
it was replacing, but thought I would ask.
