I've read the manual on this one and was hoping for some erudite discussion from people who have also had the similar problem or know for sure that it cannot be achieved.

I'm talking specifically about the positioning of the cursor when the user is paging thru the subfile and control has not been passed back to the program. SFLRCDNBR is in the subfile control record and this is only changed when the user hands back control to the program by hitting enter.

How can we take advantage of the helpful features of the subfile (scrolling without troubling the program) and yet ensure that the subfile itself can always position the cursor at the 1st row on the screen (or can't it ?)
