Hello friends ,
I have done single page subfile program.
I have an option field where user can enter options for update(2) & delete(4) . I want to know how to keep those option values even after pagedown or pageup . i.e if i type 2 in second record line and if i do pagedown and then pageup the value should be there .
What is the best way to handle this ???
Thanks n waiting

Hi
there are 2 ways, 1 is an array and the second is a Multi occuance data structure. You simply keey an index of where you are in the subfile and populate as necessary.

**************************************************************          
C     srSetArray    Begsr                                              
 ** Store values                                                        
C                   If        Idx > 1                                  
C                   EVAL      Idx=(Idx-sflrrn)-1                        
C                   FOR       RRN1=1 TO SFLRRN                          
C     RRN1          CHAIN     SFL                                      
c                   eval      idx = idx + 1                            
C                   EVAL      AryOption(idx)=SflOpt                    
C                   ENDFOR                                              
C                   ENDIF
