DISPLAY statement in Easytrieve is exactly the same as in COBOL.
WS-VAR1 W 20 A VALUE 'I AM INITIALIZED HERE' ... DISPLAY 'value of WS-VAR1 is: ' WS-VAR1
This will be printed as
value of WS-VAR1 is: I AM INITIALIZED HERE
If you want to continue the DISPLAY statement in multiple lines, use ‘+’ symbol as continuation character
WS-VAR1 W 20 A VALUE 'I AM INITIALIZED HERE' ... DISPLAY 'value of WS-VAR1 is: ' + WS-VAR1

Im new to easytrieve, Is there any equalent command for display?? Display is not working.
The above syntax of DISPLAY should work. Can you tell me what error you are getting (along with your code snippet) ?
Hey i used it to display information in an output file. I come to know that we can use display to read info in spool but not in an output file. thanks for your response
