Yes and no.  There is the DDS keyword SFLCSRRRN, which usually returns the
relative record number of the subfile where the cursor was located when
control was returned to the program.  

The exception is when the cursor is positioned outside of the subfile.  In
that case, I believe the first relative record number displayed on the
screen will be returned.  The only way I know of to avoid this is to use
RTNCSRLOC to determine if the cursor was positioned within the subfile
