1. Program will not abend, but there will be trancation in data,
Given in program 'APPLE' the value stored in database will be 'APPL'.

This is what I assume ---> As long as DCLGEN is a generated, but program not yet compiled, the old load and DBRM's bind remains the same and the only thing would be trancation in data at runtime.
