Suffixes on elements dont' show in COBOL program after COPY IDMS

I have added a couple elements in IDD. I am ready to add those elements to a record and in practice I cloned the record to a version 99 and have added the elements (and swapped to a shorter filler element which I also created.) I have not made changes to the version 1 record but somehow now when the developer tries to compile their program the COPY IDMS statement in their cobol brings in a record that does not have the suffixes on the element names. I have no idea how or why this is happeneing. When I DISPLAY the RECORD in IDD the record itself has not changed.
