Yes - this may not belong here - but I'm only onto this
list for the time being.

I' just changed a couple of central files in my
COBOL-system and recompiled - all well, but I also have
a huge number of queries which are using the same files.
I have to open and close them to make them pick
up the new file definitions.

My question is: Do I have to do this manually one query
by one - or is there a cunning method of some kind that
will do this for me?

There is no API nor command interface to change a *QRYDFN object, nor any interface to create-from-source that is provided by the Query/400 feature. There is only the interactive WRKQRY [optionally entered via QRY for s/36e] by which the *QRYDFN object can be modified; except for run-time override by OVRDBF or QRYFILE of RUNQRY, but that is of little to no assistance for changed files. Refer to the following message which gives comment about keyboard macros or other similar 'screen scraping' methods, and mention of plus links to a usage of the Virtual Terminal [VT] APIs to accomplish changes via the interactive interface, presumably with little user intervention:
