Do you mean you need to add a new field to the underlying physical file - or you just need the logical file to have a field from the physical that it doesn't already have (in the view)?

Subject: [COBOL400-L] PF / LF files


I just started working on an AS400 in April of this year.
I need some help in understanding how to create a new field for a LF (logical File).

I have added the new field to the copybook which holds the file layout.
I have recompiled the program.
I don't know what to do to the actual file to make it larger.

Can you help me?

Thank you,
