A little trick with *SET CURSOR

A quick little post to kick off 2019....

A colleague of mine had an issue today where he was trying to stop a user having to page down dozens of pages when inserting data via a DSPFIL/PMTRCD W/W (Work with) suite.

He asked me how he can reload the subfile (show the new data) but position the page at the point he (the user) was at, rather than refreshing and defaulting back to the first page again....

The solution is quite simple and as the title of the blog says.......

You use the *SET CURSOR function and set it to a field on the subfile record you wish to remain in focus.  In our case we chose the *SFLSEL field.

Thanks for reading.
