The one time I worked with subfiles was a LONG time ago. I want to
think that READC is involved in getting the cursor repositioned.
But, I can't see how that repositions the cursor on the display.
Maybe I am remembering incorrectly.

It's been a while for me on this one; I'm sure I've done at least part
of this before, but I'm not sure if I've done it all. And I'm having
difficulty understanding the manual on it.

I have two different situations that look the same, but are probably
different: in one, I have an actual subfile screen, with a selection
column, while in the other, I have a fixed screen (actually, a series of
fixed screens) that only *looks* like a subfile with a selection column.

In both cases, when one selects a row, the program goes to another
screen, where one can perform an operation for that row, then returns to
the (real or fake) subfile screen from which one selected the row.

When one returns, the cursor always goes to the top of the selection column.

I've been asked to refine this, so that the cursor goes to the row one
just finished working with.

I believe CSRLOC is probably my answer for the "fake subfile" screen,
but the manual says this doesn't work for subfiles. And the manual entry
for SFLRCDNBR has the puzzling statement, "If the subfile record format
contains field selection, this keyword is not allowed." What exactly
does THAT mean?
