Can we display the content of File record after issuing WRITE command; if NO why?

If you are WRITEing with WORKAREA OPTION, then yes.

but, if you are attempting to display the record area defined in the FD Section, I believe you will find that the record area is pointing to the next record area to be used for writting, thus you have lost addressability to the previously written record

so, no.

Depending on what you're trying to do, you can display BEFORE the WRITE; just make sure the data was moved to the area or buffer.

Only if you single buffer an unblocked record.

Should have said the "WS area (if you're using FROM) or the FD rec which resides in the buffer."
