We have to change a numeric field in a PE from N9.2 to N11.2. The view to this file is in a LDA, and is used by many programs.
We will have to store amounts larger than N9.2.
Do we need to change the LDA field to N11.2 and stow all the programs or can we only change the file?
I did some testing and it seems as if we change the file to N11.2 and just stow the LDA without changing the field in the LDA to N11.2 then all the program using the LDA works and displays values larger than N9.2.
This does not make sense to me.
Any advice or explanation will be appreciated.
