 -S "2020-03-14,2020-03-15,%Y-%m-%d"          -o outfilep -v

Are you sure you're searching the correct field for time_stamp?  If you've upgraded your System Logs, you should have a time_stamp_dt field that contains the new database-native time format.

Hi JD,

Thanks for your reply!

I am checking the System log app group and see time_stamp field (data type : Date/Time(TZ) (old style)) . So, i am using that field

I figured it now. Using the new fields worked!  :D

Thanks again JD!

You can also use the native IBM i command, Query Document (QRYDOCOND). It is an easier to use front end to arsdoc query and is available at v7.2 and higher. See the Content Manager OnDemand newsletter for 2Q2016 and 3Q2017. Links can be found at https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/628001
