Hi People,

My Doubt would be some what silly to you, but it is a major problem. In our Shop when we look at some of the JCLs in the production, the JCL may consists of the steps which will execute the program by specifying the Steplib or Joblib(LoadModule).

But My Doubt is by looking at that JCL or Loadlib is it possible to Locate the Location of the Source Program where it is residing.

Hi,

No,I don't think you can figure out the source PDS of the program.

Thank you
Krishy

Usually your load module would not contain any trace of source location. But if your shop uses a version controller, I think the load module created from version controller's JCLs would have the trace. My shop uses changeman and the changeman package number would be embedded in the load module.

If load module name and source program name is same then you can trace out. Go to 3.4 option. List all source PDS and then type in command line as

Command line: M loadmodule-name

After successful execution of above command it will give program-name at right hand side of each of PDS.

I hope it will work out....

Please let me know whether any other method is there....

Regards

You need to find out which Version control tool you Use.

PROGRAMS usually are managed by Version control tools
Some of Version control tool are Librarian , Changaman and Endevor
