AS400 RPG usage of MDT

I am doing maintenance on a RPGIII program.  I need a way to determine if the user changed a field on the screen (not a subfile).  The keyed value can be the same as the originally displayed value (or different) but I need to know it was keyed and not just left.

I thought I could use the Modified Data Tag for this.  But it appears I am wrong.  :/

Does anyone have any suggestion?  

Thank you in advance.

By "a field", do you mean "any field" or "a specific field"?

Whichever it is, you'll probably want to use the
CHANGE (Change) keyword. At the record level, the keyword causes the associated response indicator to be set on if any input-capable field in that record format is typed into by the user. At the field level, it's enabled only for those fields that have the keyword.

The documentation link shows simple examples at both levels.
