I'm having a problem where I display a panel and list the output of a table. I then issue several "say" statements in rexx and then go back to the panel. Everything works until I go back to the panel after my "say" statements are written. The lines of the "say" statement and output screen get mixed up and nothing works until I get out of ispf. Here's what I see:

I'll be executing 15 queries...and I'd like to display the status after each. Since I cannot get the "say" to work with the panel, I'd like to display a panel showing the progression. However, when I display the panel (SELECT or DISPLAY), the panel will sit there and wait for the user to hit enter, before it continues on. Is there a way to display a panel...have the rexx code continue running and refresh the screen to show some sort of status bar; without having the user to hit enter to continue?
Thanks for any ideas you have.
