TAA Tools

The Print  Changed  Message Descriptions  command prints  a listing  of
the message descriptions that have been changed in a message file.

The major  intent of this  command is to find  the message descriptions
in system supplied message files that have been changed.

The  listing is based on the  modification information stored with each
message that identifies  the date  of change.   The listing provides  a
list  only  and  does  not   describe  the  detail  changes  that  have
occurred.    If  the CHGMSGD  command  is  used to  change  one  of the
parameters to it's  current value, the  message is considered  changed.

A typical command is entered as:


This is a long running command and should be submitted to batch.

Changing  system  supplied  message   descriptions  is  appropriate  if
needed.   However, you should keep a CL program  of all changes made so
that you may run it again after installing a new release.
