TAA Tools

Upgrading to IBM i 7.3

DLTOBJ command

IBM i added a DLTOBJ command in 7.1. This conflicted with the TAA tool of the same name and caused the TAA tool and command name to be renamed to DLTOBJ2. All references to the TAA version have been changed within the TAA code and documentation to DLTOBJ2. Both commands support the basic parameters of a generic object name and an object type. Therefore in its simplest use, an existing unqualified use of DLTOBJ should work the same.

There are differences in the additional optional parameters and the TAA version supports a list for object type which if used would cause a difference. If you are using the TAA additional functions, you must change the name to DLTOBJ2.

Upgrading from 7.1 or 7.2 to 7.3

Two functions have been added to the TAA installer to assist in determining old versions of TAA created objects which may impact a conversion. Both functions run automatically and produce listings during the install.
