i am using openedge architect 11.4, is there a way / macro by which i can add custom text in each modified line.

basically what i want is to have a time stamp in each modified line something like <userid><date>.

Hi Gpandye,

We can create editor macro with variables - "${user} ${date} ${time}" in Preferences (Progress OpenEdge->Editor->Templates)

Hope this helps,

I think that basically, you do not want to have comments cluttering up your source code. What would happen if a source has been changed ten times? You would probably drown in the comments and cannot tell code from clutter.

What you basically want is version control. Search on the web for "git", PDS has support for that.
