Hi all,

If I alter index adding a column,would it effect the application programs.
Do they need to be recompiled again.

Please suggest me.

** If my question is not appropriate pls excuse me **

Hello,

It will help if you post what you "had" and how it was changed - both the data column(s) and the index definition(s).

If you are only adding a column to the index, I would suggest rebinding inorder to take advantage of the 'new' index.
The DBRM will not have changed - unless you change the SQL, so no need to reprecompile and recompile.
