What do you mean by the version? You can see the date/time of the compile if you browse the member in the Loadlibrary. If you need something more specific, be more specific about what you are asking please.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Suggest you ask your local support for help running AMBLIST.

The output from this should show what you want (again, work with your local support).
Hope this helps,

Thanks BillyBoyo, People like you give us real a welcome and encourage to learn ! I need to compare the version numbers (given via pre-compilation) between production and our test environment. There are about 100 modules. As you know when we maintain versions with load modules then it is easy to back out the changes if required. Then it is matter of running the previous version of the load module with previous bind ( same version) .

I hope you're not being ironic.

You are talking about a DB2 bind? Can you show an example or two of what you want to compare?

Hi Billyboyo. I can list few packages but doesn't make much sense. I am new to COBOL and self learning at the moment. I come across this free book from IBM , which describe bit about versioning and please check page 163 . http://www.quest.com/whitepapers/AppPerfDB2.pdf

I tried the program AMBLIST but need a better way of comparing many modules. It's OK for few modules.

I only see a total of 19-pages if I am looking correctly.
