I need to design a subfile which takes the field name and attribute as the *entry parameter and then based on that field a specific file will be read and the detailed record will be shown in the subfile screen. The issue is each time the field name & attributr may differ, so accordingly how do i design the subfile?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Not as easy as it sounds. Here are two options.

1. Program writes or updates the DSPF code for the new fields
compiles the DSPF
uses the subfile

2. Subfile has a long string field
Program builds the sting from the data fields and writes the string to the Subfile

Good Luck
