Not to sound like an MS fanboy, but another cool thing I discovered last
night. All the VBA documentation is on github.
https://github.com/OfficeDev/VBA-content

So you can send in improvements. As someone new enough to DB2 to stumble
because things are unclear in the docs, I wish I could do the same for the
IBM docs. I'm also sure a lot of more experienced folks would have a lot to
add.

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.

[https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/ms174979.aspx]

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_72/db2/rbafzhctabl.htm
ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_71/db2/rbafzhctabl.htm
