Just change the JCL to create the new record length and then go to lunch. It's done.

No problem, just do it....
But you might have to use care when refering to older generations....

Rephrase?
You want to change the length of all future generations?
You want to change the length of all past generations?
You want to concatinate a current generation with another dataset and they have different lrecls?
You want to concatinate a current generation with another dataset and they have different recfms?
