Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have the same issue but with a Cobol program. Instead of the user pressing Enter I want the program to continue automatically after write (not having the read waiting for an Enter), but only after a certain period of time. It’s for a display in our canteen which will show sales statistics. Please help !!

    Once the display file is displyed, the control should be come back to the program after specified time and do the refresh of the screen. Are you simply wanting to display new data on the screen every few seconds? Or should your program expect any input from the user in addition to the output from your program? Can you please suggest some of the good methods and some examples for DFRWRT in DDS. Is DFRWRT a separate question? Or do you want to know how it might affect the output of your program from the first part of your question? Tom

    Tom, I just want to display the new values on screen (Only Output fields are there on the screen). DFRWRT is part of my first question only. How this keyword can be used to achive the result?
