One approach:
Create a multiple occurence data structure to contain:
1. Fields as they were sent to the display file.
2. Fields as they were received from the display file.
Compare both occurences to identify differences.

Another approach:
Create hidden fields on the display file record format to contain the
values as they were sent. They will be available to use for comparison
after READ of the display file.
