How to program in RPG/400 using a DDS with multiple WINDOWs

I'm doing this because I couldn't find a way to control the TAB order on a DDS screen.  There are 3 sections on my screen (the top half of the screen is divided into 3 "boxes" side-by side and each box contains some fields).  I wanted to be able to TAB through the fields in each section before TABBING to the next section.  I couldn't find a way to do that, so I'm trying to use WINDOWs for each section. . .

I have a DDS screen with 3 WINDOW records and 1 regular record.  I want to display all 3 WINDOW records and the regular record all at once.  The 3 WINDOW records do not overlap each other.  However, the regular record occupies the entire screen and is overlapped by all 3 WINDOW records.  All 3 WINDOW records and the regular records have Input/Output (B) fields.  I want the users to be able to enter data in all 4 records by TABBING through each WINDOW record in order, then the regular record.  Right now, the regular record gets displayed with no WINDOW records.  Then I press the ENTER key, and the first WINDOW record gets displayed (overlayed on top of the regular record).  Then each time I press the ENTER key, the next WINDOW record gets displayed.  I want them to come up all at once.  

My WINDOW records are defined like this (I get confused with all the possible parameters (OVERLAY, INZRCD,...)):
A          R WINDOW1                                    
A                                      INZRCD          
A                                      OVERLAY          
A                                      WINDOW(5 4 8 22)

My RPG code currently looks like:

C                     WRITEWINDOW1                    
C                     WRITEWINDOW2                    
C                     WRITEWINDOW3                    
C                     WRITESCRN1                      
C                     READ SCRN1                    96
C                     READ WINDOW1                  96
C                     READ WINDOW2                  96
C                     READ WINDOW3                  96
