dumb question about fdisk

I have a disk which is running, mounted etc. and I want to change the bootable flag to another partition. I change the flag then I have to "write table to disk and exit". Will this destroy data on my disk? I am suddenly reluctant to write the whole partition table just to toggle a bootable flag. I can't find anything about this in the doco.
