Issue:

Based on the way that things were set up with Endevor ages ago in our company, apparently, a couple of programs have hit 96 changes over the years to force their history to consolidate. 

Is there any known way to "restore" the missing levels to allow programmers to check something in one or more of those missing levels? 

Environment:
z/OS
Resolution:

There is no way to restore the consolidated level back out to the individual pre-consolidated levels. 

None of the changes are missing. They have just been collapsed into the 0101 change level.

User can check the Summary of Changes and look at the 0101 level for updates from those early versions.

 

NOTE:   If the C1BM5000 Unload backup utility has been implemented, there is a chance the desired level can be restored if the backup file still exists for the period before the consolidation.
