If screen size of 24 x 80 is not big enough why not just change the
display size to 27 x 132 as an interim fix anyway.

If the application is running primarily in green screen environment taking
one screen out to the browser using PHP seems a little disjointed but I
have no idea of the complete application.

My 2 cents

We have a similar situation in some of our Client/Server programs. What we
do is to place the User ID as the first key field of our table. Before we
write the data to the work file we delete all the records pertaining to
requesting User. The client program "knows" it must read all the records
beginning with the User ID.

I have an interactive inventory screen. The users would like to add a
more columns, but the 24 x 80 screen is full so I'm going with PHP.
The program to help build the inventor list uses a separate alone
to build a work file in qtemp. The display program reads it and
is fine. Many people can use it at the same time since the work file is
temporary storage. I would like to use this program but a call from PHP
can't rely on temporary storage for the next SQL call to get the data.
anyone already solved a similar issue, or should i just rewrite the work
file program in PHP?
