I need to validate the subfile field in subfile. For example: user entering the data in subfile; if user enters wrong data in subfile field then i need to show error to user. How do I resolve this?

You were working on the code

When you readc the subfile record
if the value is in error
put the error message id into your variable
run your subroutine to add error message to error message subfile
turn on an indicator on the Field with DSPATR(RI) to highlight the field
Update the subfile record.

Turn off the error DSPATR(RI) indicator after updating or reading the record.
