1. You would require to find out all the programs that use the copy book
2. Analyse if any change is required in that program which uses the copy book.
3. You need to compile all the programs that uses the copy book to ensure the changes ar reflected in those programs.

Question: - "how could we find out the impacted programs list when we change some sort of code in a program "
Answer: - Say you are changing the length of FLD1. Run a search to find out the list of programs that use FLD1. Also run a search for FLD2,if anywhere FLD1 is moved to FLD2. If you need to change FLD2's length,run a search for FLD2 ...Analyse...and carry on.
Hope this helps...
