We have a display file that has one input capable field. Keying an option in the field runs a program. After that program exits, the display file is redisplayed.

Most of the display files like this work fine. This one and a few others are leaving the cursor in the wrong position.

Field starts at position 7. Key a 1 in the field (to run option 1) cursor naturally moves to position 8. Press enter to execute the program, return, cursor is in position 8 but the 1 that was keyed is gone.

That field is not cleared in the program, so it must be DDS taking the "1" out.

Keywords in the DDS: PUTOVR, ERASEINP, OVERLAY.

Behavior in Client Access is as expected; cursor returns to position 7 every time.

I created a trace file, but it doesn't mean much to me.

I also noticed that the cursor will return to any position on the screen when it is displayed again. It's not particular to the field.
