I made a subfile with 2-columns and a scroll bar.  (boy is that neat to
watch work as the records slide up the second column and then plop to the
bottom of the first column :)

I've got a problem I can't figure out though. I'd like to have the windowed
version of this program act like a drop down box of valid choices under the
entry field for other programs.  That part works just fine.  If the user
clicks on the field or puts the cursor in the field and chooses F4 the
window drops open, a mouse click selects the desired value and fills in the
blank.  All in all it works really nice.

The problem is this:  I can't figure out how to have the window display
under different locations on the screen, depending upon which program is
displaying the blank line.

For example, our name records require an Ethnicity value, based upon Federal
guide lines.  Our main program has the Ethicity field on line 5, position 20
thru 40.  Its easy to make the window appear on line 6, position 20.
However one of the other programs also displays Ethnicity, but on line 12,
position 48, so I'd like the window to appear at line 13, position 30.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
