SCNOBJDA        SCAN OBJECT DESCRIPTION ATTRIBUTES     TAAOBLT

The  Scan Object  Description  Attributes  command  scans one  or  more
objects  for  attribute  values.    This  acts  as a  simple  query  to
determine the value of attributes of objects.

A typical command would be:

              SCNLFA    ATTR(DAMAGE) OBJ(xxx/*ALL)
                         SCNVAL(*NONE) SCNOPR(*NE)

A  spooled  file would  be displayed  of all  objects in  the specified
library that have a damage condition that is not *NONE.

   OUTPUT        How  to  output the  results.   *  is  the  default to

                 is displayed.

                 If  the  command is  entered  in  batch  or *PRINT  is
                 specified,  the spooled  file is  output and retained.
