>> Ron, that is the point of the 100% subfile; my users don't type in 
 anything. nada. nothing.    My users just slide the scroll bar and mouse 
 click the item they want.  The record is selected and the default action 
 takes place with the record.>>

OK. Thats cool for small files. If I have 100,000 customers I'm not to sure 
about response time waiting to load the subfile. I've been following this 
thread and was really wondering about people saying they have no problem 
loading 2500 - 10000 records in a subfile and then displaying it. I know the 
RISC boxes are fast, but i was always taught to keep the i/o to minimum between 
displaying screens. I guess I have a hard time believing that this is not true 
anymore. (That's why we gave up on the scroll bar in the first place)
