I got advice to use three different tools! How I hate choice! I've already merged the source wiht the hammer and nails method this morning as it was urgent. I'll have to note these other methods on my to do list for next time. Thanks.

I have to recommend (enthusiastically) using PDM here -
option 55 is fantastic for this, and there's nothing in RDP
that quite matches it - closest thing is the RSE Extensions
from softlanding.com, if you are interested in that.

For now, go to the member option of PDM and put 55 on either
source member. You will probably want to use a different
member for everything, including target, until you are
satisfied with the result. You specify a root, maintenance,
and target members. You will get a split SEU window with the
root above and maintenance below.

I hope your source is not to large for SEU, then you have
problems. But you might be able to put the 2 members
side-by-side in RDP, even if not using compare. Or maybe get
the Softlanding RSE Extensions and see if those help. Be
aware that the RSE Extension merge eliminates all source
dates - or rather, sets them to the current date. You might
want to save the target to a different member at first, then
copy back to the root.

Hi,

I have an RPGLE member that I have changed while another
developper was also changing it in another library. Now I
have to insert my changes in the production version of the
member. I cannot use the compare feature as the source is too
large and too many changes have been made since I copied the
production version into my development library. So, I filter
all my changes by date. Now I know what to insert, but how do
I find out where to insert it? I can press ctrl w to see the
line immediately above the change, find that line in the
target source and copy. Now to find the next change I need to
filter my changes again.

What am I doing wrong?
