In the MSDN (Microsoft's technical documentation), If I was looking
at e.g the CREATE TABLE document for SQL Server 2016 and wanted to
navigate to SQL Server 2005, there is a nice "Other versions" link
right at the top.

On the IBM i, I don't see a simple 2-click (1. expand the popup.
2. click the version link) way of doing that. It's annoying because
google often leads me to the v5.4 docs, and I'm usually dealing with
v7.1 or v7.2 systems. Also, as a consultant, I will likely be
dealing with multiple different versions.

Is this an annoyance I have to live with, or am I not seeing a
navigation icon?


In any version of the IBM Knowledge Center is a "Search Filters:" [near the top] for which the "Clear All" can be clicked, followed by clicking the "Add Products...", from which choosing IBM i 7.1 and IBM i 7.2 under the Operating Systems heading, should ensure searches return information from both of those releases. That of course, is just for searches. I do not know if there is a way to /enter/ the IBM KC with those implicitly activated vs having to navigate to effect those settings. However...

Also note that on many topics, for the URLs between v7r2 and v7r1, the only difference may be the 72 vs the 71, and similarly between some topics between other releases; essentially if the way the documents were and are organized between the two releases, the only change is the release identifier. See the two [partial] links for the SQL statement CREATE TABLE for those two releases:

ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_71/db2/rbafzhctabl.htm
