We have a program in our AS400 that is scheduled to run every night to backup User data. I want to view the source code within the file. I simply want to look at it but for the life of me I dont know how. I dont want to edit or change anything, just look at it. Could anyone please give me a hand with this? I know this is very simple but I am not too proficient in the AS400.

Hi rxmijares,

If you know where the source is, and you don't have any experience with as/400
the most simple way is QRY

Just type on a command line :

RUNQRY QRYFILE((LibraryName/FileName ProgramName ))

File nam is possible QCLSRC

Other wise start PDM with STRDPM choos option 3,
Fill the fields on the screen and press enter,
now you can use Option 5 in front of a program to view the contents.

GoodLuck,
Murph

Sometimes you can find out where the source file for the compiled program is by using the DSPPGM command.

Example would be:  DSPPGM PGM(mypgm) DETAIL(*MODULE)   then use option 5 to display the module information. In the module attributes it will show the source file, library, and member the module was compiled from.

If the program isn't an ILE program then just running DSPPGM PGM(mypgm) will display the source file,lib,member that was used to compile.

Once you've got the source file you can use the STRSEU command to display the source.
example:  STRSEU SRCFILE(MYLIB/QRPGLESRC) SRCMBR(MYPGM) OPTION(5)   or  WRKMBRPDM FILE(QGPL/QRPLESRC) MBR(MYPGM) then option 5

I used STRPDM and entered QCLSRC as the file name and was able to see it. Thank you.
