Specify the default search mode when looking for a file or member in a DD that is a concatenation of paths. This option applies to all DDs that do not explicitly specify a SearchMode option.
Restriction: This topic applies only when the AppMaster Builder AddPack has been installed, and applies only to Windows platforms.




FirstFound Default. Stop the search with the first matching file or member found in the DD path concatenation. Use this option for best performance, and to to control the search order of files, such as rule INCLUDE members.
Latest Search across all paths in the DD for the file or member with the latest modification time and date. Use this option to find the most recent version of a file. For example, you could use this option when the source and compiled (DLL) form of a rule member are in the same directory, and you want the latest version, regardless of form.

For best performance, avoid using this option. Each path in the DD concatenation is searched, even if the desired member exists in the first path.
