Tim,

An old, I'm talking realllly old, workaround we used was to write a program that
read the display source and created a /COPY field/position cross reference
table.

This table was used by the program.  Therefore you did not "hard code" positions
in the program.  You just had to remember to recompile the program if you made
-any- position changes in the screen.
