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

Either start with some desired value or give the user a search field(s) on the subfile screen.

You can either create a page-at-a-time or a growing subfile.

When user enter search value you will clear the subfile and reload a page from the proper location in the physical file.

    ...what changes need to be done in the existing program to accomadate the subfile... The direct answer is not to use a load-all subfile. A load-all subfile should not be used for displaying more than a couple hundred records. They allow up to 9999 records, but that is far too many to be useful. You should use a page-at-a-time subfile when the possible records grow to more than around a couple hundred. Page-at-a-time is a subfile defined with subfile size equal to subfile page. To understand subfiles, review the Application Display Programming manual. Chapter 4., Displaying Groups of Records Using Subfiles, has explanations, descriptions and example programs. Tom
