How to find what version of JDE World (J D Edwards ERP) is installed.

I thought I’d write this up as a quick post because this is one of those things I always forget how to do. I’m sure in earlier versions there used to be a menu or screen that showed the version number but when I needed to do this last week I couldn’t find any trace of it.

Anyway if you need to find the version and patch level of the version of JDE which is running all you need to do is navigate to a command line and then do a DSPDTAARA QJDF, you’ll then see data area displayed which shows the version and patch level. For example…

Data area . . . . . . . : QJDF
Library . . . . . . . : JDFOBJ
Type . . . . . . . . . : *CHAR
Length . . . . . . . . : 2000
Text . . . . . . . . . : J.D Edwards & Co. Software Control
Data Area Value
Offset *...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....50
'50 'Software Source Library = JDFSRC
'100 'Software Object Library = JDFOBJ V00MENU
'150 'Software Data File Library = JDECOMSEC
'200 'Program to Execute =
'250 'System Identification/Name =
'300 'Hidden Selections Menu Key = ZHIDDEN
'350 'Software Version Id = A73PC00015
'400 'Library Editing Routine =
