I don't understand if you are going to use CL to Display the Object Description to a file and then query the file, why not just use a single CL Command and retrieve the object's library and be done with it? You did say you wanted the most efficient and direct approach for getting the library name.

There is also the QUSROBJD API that will use the *LIBL/ObjectName to get the Object Description for the object.

But to each his own...

thank you George - i'll be invoking from rpg and not CLP - but I'm going to do something along the very same lines DSPOBJD to an outfile and query it.

I'm looking for the most efficient , most direct approach for pulling
the first library name of an object in a *LIBL.

here is why...

the rpg pgm receives a lib and table name as a parm, - user may
specify blank or *libl for the lib parm...

If blank or *libl I'll need to determine that library for the table
name from my *libl.

What I am eventually doing needs an implicit lib name... it is nothing
that *libl will work with.
