Hi,

The changeman version control tool at our shop moves COBOL code to below dataset,

Code:
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 BROWSE            XXX.CHAN.GEMAN.PROD.XXX               Row 00000XX of 0000XXX
 Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR
                   Name     Prompt       Size    Init     Mod      VV MM          ID 
 _________ XXXXXXX                       15720   15720    1890     46.19        ARNOLD



We are trying to convert the legacy(COBOL) code to OOP code using tool or manual code.
To determine that, we need to know the number of times the legacy code was changed.

We are having more than 10000 legacy code members.

I am trying to find out, if VV(Version number) and MM(Modification level)
can be used to determine the number of times the code has been changed.
(Some formula or inference)

In the sample I've shown VV.MM = 46.19
Can this be use to get what I need?

Thanks experts!

Code:
VV(Version number)
This will tell you how many times the changes happened and deployed to production.
So yes you can use it but not sure if you are trying to get answer as to how to do it in batch?.

Sorry, then what is MM?

As far as I understand, MM is Modification level number, and it shows the number of times changes are made and promoted to that(prod, dev, qa, etc..) level.

MOD is modification, and it shows the number of lines of changes made to the source since the 1st time it was promoted.

I am still not sure what is VV - version number?

This is from version control perspective, that link which you mentioned is for STATS ON, outside Changeman.

Changeman does NOT allow STATS ON.

This is not duplicate according to me.

Thanks!

there is no such perspective if the statistics are the ISPF statistics
any SCM tool statistics are completely different beasts

Did I just not answered?
if you need another proof , try "H" on that module to see how VV is changed.
Code:
H     - History

elixir1986, have you contacted the vendor to find out how Changeman uses the VV field? If not, WHY NOT? The vendor should ALWAYS be your first point of contact for this type of question -- they know the product much better than anyone else!
