During the UPS strike, a customer of mine called Monday morning that he
had just landed a major account.  He needed some software changes
immediately.  One of the changes required adding a field to a file.
Should I tell the customer that changes to the database require more
care than that, turn down the business?  No.  It has to be done.  Just
do it (That's a great slogan, someone should use that)

Got to go with LVLCHK(*NO).  Remember to compile all programs that add
or update that file.  It'll work smooth.
