Just to understand the circumstances:

- You are editing an RPGIV source member which contains a file declaration (F-spec) for a Physical File
- The Outline view identifies the file, format name, field names and attributes
- You would like to see the TEXT or COLHDG definitions of the fields presented in the Outline view, along with the other attributes

As Vern has already suggested, I don't think this is possible. Submitting an RFE is an option. However, this might make the Outline view "cluttered".

Have you considered using the Field Table view?

Apologies if you're already familiar with this.
- Identify the File concerned, (either in the Remote Systems view or the Object Table view)
- Right-click the File object and select SHOW IN TABLE > FIELDS

This will at least show you the TEXT or COLHDG details for each field - BUT - only for Physical Files. (The Field Table view is not available for Logical, Display or Printer Files.) It /would/ be nice to be able to Right-Click on the file name within the source and have the SHOW IN TABLE option on the context menu - for all file types. It would also be nice to have COLHDG viewable /as well as/ TEXT. Perhaps an RFE is the way to go!

Final Tip. If your file is defined with DDS and you have the DDS source member open in the editor, you /will/ see the COLHDG and TEXT attributes in the Outline view! (But we're all using SQL, right?)

I suggest you submit an RFE with this request. If it can be done, you might hear an answer of how. If not, it will be looked at by IBM.

Hi all

I would like to know, if there is the possibility to display in the outline
section, beside each file fields the ColHdg or Text description .. many time
the field's name is not enough to find the attribute that we are looking
for; i have installed iSphere hoping with that i could, but the outline
section is the same .. i'm wrong in something ?

Thanks in advance
