Hi Dan,

My users are using Extra Attachmate on Win95.
They have been told to use Tab keys but there are some clever users who try
arrow keys and land in problems.

Previous respondents have mentioned ERRSFL, but I fail to see how that will help
in your case.  As someone else mentioned, user education would appear to be
useful.  I would try to teach them to avoid using the regular up-down-right-left
arrow keys and, instead, teach them to use the tab, left tab, new line, and
field exit keys.  Remember, you _can_ teach "old dogs" new tricks!

What are your users using for AS/400 terminals?  At my current site, we are
using Client Access for Win95 V3R1M3 and I've found that I can just tab my way
out of a keyboard lock caused by keying something in a non-input area.  Pretty
sure this isn't available for dumb terminals, but other 5250 emulations may give
you some options.
