 Why isn't it? ------------'

 I don't know why you think you can't transfer the OBJs from one lib
 to another Asa. For example let's say your 3 libraries are named
 LIB1.LIB, LIB2.LIB and LIB3.LIB. Combine them all this way....

 LIB NEWLIB +LIB1.LIB +LIB3.LIB +LIB3.LIB; <--- creates 'newlib.lib'

 LINK/Q NEWLIB, NEWLIB.QLB,, BQLB45.LIB;   <--- creates 'newlib.qlb'

 If you want to _move_ OBJs from, say, LIB2 into LIB1 do it this

 LIB LIB2 *OBJONE *OBJTWO ; <--- extract the desired OBJs from LIB2

 LIB LIB1 +OBJONE +OBJTWO ; <--- now put the extracted OBJs into LIB1

 You don't have recompile the OBJs to put them into different
 libraries Asa, that seems to be where you have been misinformed.
 Think of libraries as warehouses and OBJs as crates with goods in
 them. You can move them from one warehouse to another without having
 to re-package the crates right? Just move them to the other
 warehouse is all you need to do.
