The PAN keyword, used in reports directed to the display, permits the total width of the report to exceed that of the display by allowing the user to pan columns.

PAN

 

 

The PAN keyword causes the query processor to buffer the report page and allows the user to pan columns using the left and right cursor key. The panning operation never displays only part of a column.

 

The PAN keyword operates differently depending on where it is placed in the query sentence. If it appears before or after all the displayed fields, the entire display is panned. If it appears between displayed fields, only those fields following the keyword are panned; the remaining fields being locked in position.

 

The L and R keys or Ctrl-B and Ctrl-F can be used in place of the cursor keys.
