Debbie, without knowing more about how the program runs and what it does, it's 
hard to say exactly. Do you totally want to avoid any DISPLAY output at all on 
the workstation, perhaps because it interferes with other workstation output? 
Or do you just want a record for later?

Maybe easiest is just doing DSPJOBLOG *PRINT after the COBOL program finishes. 
If it must be fancier, then maybe a function that retrieves the messages from 
the joblog and prints them nice and pretty.

If you want no workstation output at all, then DISPLAY probably isn't what you 
should be using because it, well..., displays stuff.
