Is it possible to increase the length of an existing data area, without disturbing the values in it?
For instance, I have a data area with initial length of 256 with some values already in it.
Now that some more fields need to be added to the program (due to enhancement) which writes into the data area, the length of the data area also needs to be increased to 452 length.
Now is it possible to increase the length of it, without disturbing the values in it? OR do I need to delete it & re-create another with the new length (of-course with the same name).
If so, how do I copy the existing values into the new data area into exactly the same positions?
