You have some changes to be made in a copybook.
Like adding a new field and renaming another field.
What all precautions should you take when doing this???
How will you proceed?

what would you do?
JCL, SQL and code in programs have an irritating habit of doing what you say,
not what you meant.

just give a search in program library to identify all the programs which uses this copybook.Then do a mass search whether any of them will use the field to be changed too.then change the programs accoringly. i mean name change ,record layout change etc.the do a recompile too for all the members which uses the copybook.
