If the displayed statement exceeds the size of the display area, the first page is displayed. Subsequent pages may be viewed or modified using ITEQ edit control commands. Acceptable commands from the input area are then limited to the ITEQ edit control commands and the SHOW, LOGOFF, and QUIT commands. ITEQ ignores any other command.
If the PF17 key is pressed before another statement is submitted, the display area is cleared and reset to output mode. The cursor is positioned to the beginning of the input area.
A user can print a copy of SHOW results, while the results are still active in the display area by entering the SHOW command and then the PRINT command.
