hi,

Code:
DISPLAY ' ERROR STATUS= ' FTW UPON SYSOUT.


Can anyone of you let me know what the above display statement will do?

Thanks,
Bala

It simply means that the message will be written to SYSOUT, instead to the default system's logical output device.

It will display the literal ' ERROR STATUS= ' and the value of the variable FTW on SYSOUT.
