Hi,

Is there any way we can find out how many people changed one member(of pds), and what they changed.

Lets say i have a dataset ABC.DEF.GHI and MEM1 as its one member.
User A deletes 10 lines, afterwards User B adds 2 lines and some time later User C comments 2 lines.
So i should get all three ids and thair action on the member.

Just wondering if it is possible. icon_question.gif

If I recall correctly, only SMF can provide you such info.

The SMF records only record when a member is deleted, unfortunately not updated.

Hello,

And even if you find a way to know who/when a member was updated, you would not know what was changed.

Is there some business requirement to know who changes which pds member(s) and what they changed or is this just so blame can be placed?

There may be a way:
write a SAVEDIFF (for example) macro that will:

1. compare the edited member with the stored member,
2. save the differences (along with the userid) somewhere,
3. save the edited member (just as SAVE would do).

However, you have to instruct the users to type SAVEDIFF instead of SAVE.
Also, you will not be able to prevent a programmer to just SAVE the member, so there may be some changes missing...
(I would not override the SAVE command).
