I have one child segment in IMS DB and i need to find if it is read in any of the program or not.
I tried searching one-by-one in few programs but this child segment is not mentioned instead its parent segment is read.
Is there any other way than manually checking one by one in all programs to confirm if child segment is read or not ?
I did srchfor with segment name. And then started checking program by program(as few programs were only mentioned segment name in comment and not actually reading it) and got 1-2 programs reading that segment.
all depends ..
only if the segment layout is a standalone copybook/source
but the same result can be obtained - with the same assumption - under plain good ole ISPF by invoking the member parts list,
which can produce a formatted printout or a raw dataset that can be processed by a user program ( rexx would be a good candidate )
