You would have to recompile ALL the programs that are using this copybook.

Hi rajesh,
Once u recompile the whole program only u may get the exact side effect in all sub divisions. so i think ramya is right..

hi,

some of non impacted programs also need to compile.

Ex.
PGMA calls (Static) PGMB

PGMB using the updated copy book
compile PGMB

but in case of static call you have to compile PGMA also.
