Display of Input Data in Concealed ACCEPT Fields

If you have specified OFF and ECHO clauses for the same ACCEPT statement in your program, RM/COBOL will conceal any data entered during input for that statement but on completion of input will display the data. Visual COBOL will not display the data for this ACCEPT statement once input has been completed.

If you want to display the data input for an ACCEPT statement with the OFF and ECHO clauses specified, you must add a DISPLAY statement after the ACCEPT statement.
