Probably not, but it's not normally necessary either, By default the cursor 
is positioned to the first input capable field. The only way I know of to 
position the cursor to a non-input capable area of the display (assuming 
that there is at least one input capable field on the display) is with the 
DDS CSRLOC keyword, which allows you to position by row and column 
position. If your display is causing the cursor to be positioned to a 
non-input capable area, it is probably because someone has modified the 
position of the fields, and not bothered to correct the CSRLOC logic.

Otherwise, a little education might be all that's needed. Emulated 5250 
display users often don't realize that the PC tab key advances the cursor 
to the next input capable field, and the left control key will reset a 
keyboard error.
