Hi,

I coded the one COBOL program. After completing that Somebody has overwritten some other code in that. So I lost the entire code. Is there any option for retrieving the original code.

Vamsee.

If your Admin took back up of the code then only you can retrive it.

If the original source was in a PDS, and that PDS has NOT been compressed, and if you have any of the usual third-party PDS management tools (PDSMAN, STARTOOLS, etc.), most of them have a facililty to recover a member that has been changed or deleted.

Otherwise, I'd go along with Rupesh's answer and contact your storage admin.

This command we generall use after making chanes in code and to check what exactly we made.

Vamsee'e problem is some one else modified code and now he wants it earlier code.
