The ? HOLD command lists fields described in a Master File created by the ON TABLE HOLD command. The list displays the field names, the aliases, and the formats as defined by the FORMAT (USAGE) attribute. The ? HOLD command displays field names up to 32 characters. If a field name exceeds 32 characters, a symbol in the 32nd position indicates a longer field name. In WebFOCUS, this symbol is an ampersand (&), and in Developer Studio, the symbol is a caret (>).
