How to change a field description

I plan to re-use an unused field in a PF. Of course, I want to give it a new COLHDG. My question is ... how to do this without re-creating the PF? I did this once (4 years ago) but I don't remember what command I used to make it "take" (just changing the source code would not be sufficient)

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you have DDS Source, you can make your changes there.

Then do CHGPF

Prompt on the command to put in the source file  Lib/Name

You can change any of the values. If there is a potential for data loss, you will get a warning message to see if you want to continue.

You can also use SQL ALTER TABLE
