The following table describes the things to consider when using the DISPLAY command.

DISPLAY Considerations 
Topic Usage Notes
Conflicting Write Operations on Network-attached Systems On network-attached client systems, if the same file to redirect stdout and as the file in a DISPLAY command is specified, the results may be incomplete due to conflicting write operations to the same file.
Displaying Apostrophes in the Text String To display an apostrophe within the text string, use two consecutive apostrophes (single quotes) to distinguish it from both the single quotes enclosing the string and a regular double-quote character.
Specifying the System Console/Standard Output Device The asterisk (*) character can be used as the fileid specification to direct the display messages to the system console/standard output (stdout) device.

The system console is the:

  • Display screen in interactive mode
  • Standard output device in batch mode

For more information about the display screen and standard output devices, seeFile Requirements.

Utility Variables Utility variables are replaced by their values before text is displayed. This is done by preceding the variable name with an ampersand character (&).

To display the name of a utility variable, use two ampersand characters (&&) instead of one.

z/OS fileid Usage Rules A DDNAME must obey the same construction rules as Teradata SQL column names except that:
  • The “at” character (@) is allowed as an alphabetic character.
  • The underscore character (_) is not allowed.

The DDNAME must obey the applicable rules of the external system and may reference a sequential or VSAM data set.

If the DDNAME represents a data source on magnetic tape, the tape may be either labeled or non-labeled, as supported by the operating system.
