Yes, this was it.  Unfortunately, removing the OVERLAY keyword precluded the
screen footer and message subfile from displaying.

I figured out what was so different about this application from all the
other subfile apps I've done over the years.  Normally, the user will key in
the information used to load the subfile on a separate display, hit Enter,
and the subfile is loaded and displayed.  Return back to the entry screen to
key in a new supplier number (as in this case).

This application I cloned had only the subfile control record to use for the
supplier number entry.  If an invalid supplier number was entered, I wanted
to clear the subfile from the previous supplier and show a "blank" subfile.
I ended up clearing the subfile and then wrote one blank record to the
subfile and set on the indicator for SFLDSP.  Works great now.

Thanks for all the help!
