Hello,

The current release is R11. The "other" release still supported is 6.4. One of my sites is running an out of support release 6.3.

Are you certain the release is 3.4? What does the copyright info show for the latest date?

All of the info about which release may be academic as i just went thru the R11 material and there is no mention of IAM. There are interfaces to several database systems as well as VSAM, QSAM, and even old ISAM. However, there is no menton of IAM.

Hi Dick,

Please find the version as shown in sysprint....

CA-EASYTRIEVE PLUS-6.4 0311

So do you mean to say that we cannot do any update using Easytrieve?

Thanks,
Ricky

Yes, i believe that is the case. At least not with IAM. . .

To make certain, you could open an issue with CA support to confirm.

You might also open an issue with Innovation Data Processing (the vendor for IAM) and ask what they recommend.
