How can I add a field to the end of a physical file?

How can I add a field to the end of a physical file? Is it possible to add a field in LF? I know one way is by editing the source using option two from wrkmbrpdm. I will change the parm LVLCHK to *No so that I don't have to recompile all programs. But is there any other way? Is it possible by CHGPF?

The CHGPF command (& SQL Alter Table) can be used to add, remove, and change columns from physical files and SQL tables. Logical files would have to be dropped and recreated.
