I think the object module and load module are one & the same thing. Both are created after compilation of the source code.

Hi,
I agree with kanak.
To add to the same after compilation the object module is created and in link edit this object module gets the required addressability and load module is created.
Object module is not executable it is the load module that is executed hance both are not the same thing.

regards,
David.
