Or, if the intention is to display the same data more than once on the
screen:
1) define multiple fields in dds
2) in rpg (iv), overlay n-1 fields to the first field
3) change the value of the first field only, the rest follow

actual sample whipped together:
dds:
A                                      DSPSIZ(24 80 *DS3)     
A                                      CA03(03)               
A          R MYREC                                            
A                                  1  3'My field ...:'        
A            MYFIELD       10   O  1 17                       
A                                  2  3'My field (1):'        
A            MYFIELD1      10   O  2 17                       
A                                  3  3'My field (2):'        
A            MYFIELD2      10   O  3 17                       
A                                  5  3'Press F3 to exit'     

rpgiv:
fmultd     cf   e             workstn                    
d myfieldds       ds                                     
d  myfield                                               
d  myfield1                           overlay(myfield)   
d  myfield2                           overlay(myfield)   
c                   eval      myfield = 'Hello'          
c                   dow       not *in03                  
c                   exfmt     myrec                      
c                   enddo                                
c                   eval      *inlr = *on
