Date Last Modified Panel Report

       A technique for generating a report that displays the
date last modified field in Information/Management panels is
disclosed.  The technique can be used with Information/Management for
MVS Version 4 and above.

      In the flow chart above, a batch job invokes
Information/Management and executes a terminal simulator panel (TSP).
The TSP selects the Panel Modification Facility (PMF) Panel List
option to perform a block update for a selected panel data set.
While in update for each panel, the Common Update panel is selected
and a FINDSDATA is processed for the date last altered structured
word (101F).  If a date is found, the panel name and value for the
date last altered field are passed to a CLIST. After all processing,
the TSP executes CANCELs to exit the panel updates.

      The CLIST checks for a new report.  If it is a new report, it
will allocate a new report data set and write the headings, panel
name, and date last altered value to the report data set.  If it is
not a new report, it will add the panel name and data last altered
value to the bottom of the report data set.  Below is a sample
report.
