By default, a prompt character is shown only in the field containing the cursor. If value is Yes, then the prompt character is shown in every field managed by the ACCEPT statement. The prompt characters are removed when the ACCEPT is terminated. Prompts never appear in SECURE fields. Default is No. The configuration variable SCRN_PROMPT_ALL is synonymous with this option.

Note: Setting the SCREEN keyword PROMPT-ALL to the value Protected will have the same effect as setting PROMPT-ALL to Yes, except that prompt characters will not be displayed in protected fields.
