Thanks Vern.

I figured it was a stretch finding it in the system catalogs. In the
interests of expediency I just did the DSPFFD to an *OUTFILE and queried

Hi Gord

The system catalogs would not have that, as they are very SQL-related,
and this attribute is specific to IBM i.

I wondered if the DBXREF tables would have the information you want -
the main one is QADBXREF, and in one listing of columns, it did not seem
to include this attribute. There are other such tables, all start with
QADB, so maybe check those out.

want to see which files in a library still have REUSEDLT set to *NO.
to not do DSPFD to an *OUTFILE but ended up having to.
