Use the SFLCSRRRN keyword.  You'll find it on the General Keywords for
the subfile control Record in SDA.  All you have to do is define a
signed numeric hidden field in the subfile control record with a length
of 5 and 0 decimal positions.  The field will contain the relative
record number of the subfile record where the cursor was when the user
pressed enter or any function key.

One word of warning.  If the cursor was not in the subfile, located
between records, or on an inactive record the field will contain 0.
