hi Velmurugan,

If you are looking for the last date & time on which the specific load was created then just VIEW the load dataset and you will be able to find a date in format (YYYYMMDD)

Hi, What you see in YYYYMMDD is compilation date. Not last link-edited date. Link-edit date can be different from compilation date.

Consider the case of program A making a static call to program B.

Suppose If B is changed, then A need not be compiled, instead it can be just link-edited. In this case, Link-edit date and compilation date would be different for A. So its not the standard way of looking at the timestamp.

Venu,

Search for date which is associated with your program name.

Srihari,
YUP, you are correct, but the load doesn't contain timestamping for the link-edit. Hence in that case the compilation job in the SPOOL can be checked. If there is some other way then please let us know.

You can extract the timestamp from load module using AMBLIST utility.

//REPORT EXEC PGM=AMBLIST
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=Load module name
LISTIDR MEMBER=mem-name
LISTLOAD OUTPUT=XREF,MEMBER=mem-name
/*

Forgot to mention where to check the timestamp.. Please check in the SYSPRINT approximately 24th line will contain the details of the timestamp.
