Hi,
Could any one tell me, if I make a change in the copybook that is used by a program,will the program need to be recompiled in order to take up the new load module or will it take the new one by default..If any one has to say more on this..pls do so..

Regards,
Arun.

Yes, the program needs to be recompiled.

The reason is compilation copies the variables from the copybook to the program. As you are changing the variables in the copybook, those changes wont be reflected in the program until you recompile that program.

I hope it helps.

Regards,
Manohar
