Hi,

There is a change in a copybook, removing the existing fields and including the length of that field in the existing field.
Also the character field is modified to comp-3 with filler.
so overall, there is no change in the length. but exisiting field is removed.

this copybook is used in close to 80 programs, in which only in 10 programs the exisiting field removed being used. I am sure that those 10 programs we need to change and test it.

what about the other 70 programs. do we need to recompile the programs.
because there is no change in the length of the copybook but the existing fields are removed and another field is changed as Comp-3.

Regards
KK
