suppose if a cobol-db2 program is referencing some table TABLEA.
what happens if a new column is added to an existing table TABLEA
and,

a) select * is coded in the cobol- db2 program
b)if the new column is not referenced in the cobol-db2 program

Hello,

a) Suggest select * not be used in a cobol program other than for homework assignments.

b) Nothing will happen (unless i misunderstand the question).
Hope this helps,
