OVERLAY Issue

Post  rajkumar400 on Wed Dec 29, 2010 1:34 am


I have 2 record formats ( rec1 and rec2 ) in my DSPF and rec2 is defined with overlay keyword.

RPG does the follwing to display both rec formats:

WRITE REC1
EXFMT REC2

But only the REC2 is displayed.

What would be the issue?

No way brother it will display both records...
Write rec1 will write ur header part ie to the screen...Then EXFMT rec2(say for ex ur rec2 contains data part and footer part with overlay) it also displayed on screen ---without erasing previous screen(rec1) due to overlay keyword specified on rec2......
