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...
