As with anything there are multiple ways to do this, however the below is my preferred method the get the size of a file or object on a System i / AS400 system.

  • Issue the command wrkobj library/file for example wrkobj oslcwlf3/oep70W <enter>
  • Use option 8 to Display description <enter>

AS400 Filesize

  • The object description will give you a lot of useful information such as the creation date/time and who created the file. If you page down a couple of times you will get to the size.
