yes.The entire code will be shifted to the left when you issue "NUM ON STD COB".Its the property of the command.
Look at the commands below:
Seq Command Description
STD NUM ON STD Sequence number is only in columns 73-80
COB NUM ON COBOL Sequence number is only in columns 1-6.
OFF UNNUM Sequence number must NOT be in the member.
Don't use NUM OFF (it will leave the seq number).
I am not sure whether you can recover it if you had saved.
Unless issue "cancel" and come out.
