Hi,

I have to dispaly a report in the SPOOL. After one customers info. is completed I need to display the info. for the second customer in a new page. Is there any option to skip the current page and start from next page.

it' s not a cobol issue, just an issue of understanding the different record formats...

for a print/sysout dataset the usual record format is FBA, with a record length of 133...

where the first character is the ASA control character and the following 132 bytes are ... data

check the manual for the meaning of the different control chars...
" " blank is space one line and print
"1" is skip to channel one and print , channel 1 is the usual indicator for a new page

and there are at least 14 more

Display does not have a new page option and display is a terrible way to produce reports!
