Hi Ashish,

Eject:It is a printer command to print the next statement onwards at the top of the next page.

Continue:It will take u to next logical stmt.

Code:
PERFROM 1000-PARA VARYING I FROM 1 BY 1 UNTIL I= 10 .
PERFORM 2000-PARA.
 
1000-PARA.
  IF I =5
      CONTINUE/NEXT SENTENCE
  END-IF.

2000-PARA.
  DISPLAY I. 


In the above code if we code continue then when I=5 it wont come out from the loop & it will execute for I=6 till I= 10 & then it will execute 2000-PARA & will display 10 but if we code next sentence it will come out from the loop & execute 2000-PARA. in that case it will display 5.
