TAA Tools

The   Display  Data   Base  Field   command   displays  the   attribute
information for  a field in a physical file  or a single format logical
file.    The  attributes include  such  things as  the  length, decimal
positions, buffer position  in the record,  text, and column  headings.

A typical command would be:


The attribute  information for field  ABC in FILEA would  be displayed.

DSPDBFFLD Command parameters                          *CMD

   FILE          The  qualified name of  the file  containing the field
                 to be  displayed.  It  must be  a physical  file or  a
                 single format logical file.

                 The  library value  defaults  to  *LIBL.   A  specific
                 library or *CURLIB may also be used.

   FIELD         The field to display attribute information for.

   OUTPUT        How  to  output the  results.   *  is  the  default to
                 display the  spooled file  if the  command is  entered
                 interactively.  The  spooled file is deleted  after it
                 is displayed.

                 If  the  command is  entered  in  batch  or *PRINT  is
                 specified,  the spooled  file is  output and retained.
