DSPFMT          DISPLAY FORMAT                         TAADBHJ

The  Display Format  command  displays a  subfile  of the  fields  that
exist in  a physical file  or a single  format logical file.   This can
be  helpful when  attempting to  determine which  field name to  use or
detail information  about a field.   The  command may also  be used  to
print a simple listing.

A typical command would be:

             DSPFMT    FILE(xxx)

The  top of the  display describes  the qualified  file name,  the text
description of the file, and the format name.

The   subfile  display  describes  the   field  type,  length,  decimal
positions, and text.   An option may be  entered to display the  detail
information about  the field  such as the  buffer location,  the column
headings, the field reference information, etc.

If  the  OUTPUT(*PRINT)  option is  used,  an  80  wide printed  output

F9 may be used to display the access path for the file.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   FILE          The qualified  file name  of the  file.   The  library
                 value  defaults  to  *LIBL.    *CURLIB  may  be  used.
                 Either  a physical  file  or a  single  format logical
                 file  may be  specified if  the interactive  option is

   OUTPUT        How  the  output should  be  displayed.    *  means  a
                 display    appears   if    the    command   is    used
                 interactively.   If  the  command is  run in  batch or
                 *PRINT is specified, a spooled file is output.


Only a physical or single format  logical file may be specified if  the
interactive option is used.

The RTVFLDARR  tool used  to access  the information  allows up to  998
fields in a file.
