 DSPFMT          DISPLAY FORMAT                         TAADBHJ

 The  Display Format  command  displays a  subfile  of the  fields  that
 exist in  a physical file  or a single  format logical file.   This can
 be  helpful when  attempting to  determine which  field name to  use or
 detail information  about a field.   The  command may also  be used  to
 print a simple listing.

 A typical command would be:

              DSPFMT    FILE(xxx)

 The  top of the  display describes  the qualified  file name,  the text
 description of the file, and the format name.

 The   subfile  display  describes  the   field  type,  length,  decimal
 positions, and text.   An option may be  entered to display the  detail
 information about  the field  such as the  buffer location,  the column
 headings, the field reference information, etc.

 If  the  OUTPUT(*PRINT)  option is  used,  an  80  wide printed  output
 occurs.

 F9 may be used to display the access path for the file.

 Command parameters                                    *CMD
 ------------------

    FILE          The qualified  file name  of the  file.   The  library
                  value  defaults  to  *LIBL.    *CURLIB  may  be  used.
                  Either  a physical  file  or a  single  format logical
                  file  may be  specified if  the interactive  option is
                  used.

    OUTPUT        How  the  output should  be  displayed.    *  means  a
                  display    appears   if    the    command   is    used
                  interactively.   If  the  command is  run in  batch or
                  *PRINT is specified, a spooled file is output.
