CHKOBJ3         CHECK OBJECT 3                         TAAOBJY

The Check  Object 3 command  is like the  system CHKOBJ command  except
that  a better first  level message (including  the type of  object) is
sent  if  the object  is not  found.   CHKOBJ  sends a  CPF9801 message
where the  first  level text  reads  'Object xxxx  in library  yyy  not
found'.   Typical error text  from CHKOBJ3 would  be 'File xxxx  in yyy
not found'.

The  command  parameters  are  identical  between  CHKOBJ  and  CHKOBJ3
except  that  CHKOBJ3  also  supports  the  value  *LAST  for  the  MBR

The intent of CHKOBJ3  is that you would use it when  you do not intend
to  monitor  for  the  CPF9801  not  found  message,  but want  a  more
descriptive first level of error text sent.

The escape message sent is TAA9801  (not CPF9801).  Most common  object
type such  as *PGM  are spelled  out as  'Program' in the  text of  the

The  other  escape messages  normally  sent by  CHKOBJ  are re-sent  by
CHKOBJ3 such as CPF9802 (not authorized) and CPF9815 (no member).

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   OBJ           The  qualified name of the object  to be checked.  The
                 library value  defaults to  *LIBL.   *CURLIB may  also
                 be used.

   OBJTYPE       The object  type to  be checked.   The same  values as
                 supported  by  CHKOBJ are  provided.   Prompt  for the

   MBR           The member to be  checked for a data  base file.   The
                 default  is *NONE  meaning no  member is  checked.   A
                 member  name  or the  special values  *FIRST  or *LAST
                 may be used to check a member.

   AUT           The  authorization  to  the  object  to  be   checked.
                 *NONE is the  default meaning that only  the existence
                 of  the object  will be  checked and  not if  the user
                 has any authority to the object.

                 The  same  values as  exist  on CHKOBJ  with  the same
                 meaning may be specified.  Prompt for the list.
