Basically, anything that won't affect the layout of the I/O buffer.
However, as I said before, the simple way to double check is just to
compare the member format level ID of the file before and after
recreating it or changing it with CHGPF. If they're different you must
either turn off level checking or recompile all the affected programs.
Don't turn off level checking. However, if you do turn it off make 100%
sure you know what you're doing.
