Subject: Re: REXX Table dialog display problem
Guess: the row you see is the LAST row added (probably with ORDER).
To successfully TBSARG, you should TBVCLEAR first:
"TBVCLEAR" tblname /* zaps all table variables */
parse value "* * *" with tblfld1 tblfld2 tblfld3 .
"TBSARG" tblname "NAMECOND(TBLFLD1,EQ,TBLFLD2,EQ,TBLFLD3,EQ)"
"TBDISPL" tblname "PANEL("tdpanel")"
if rc > 4 then leave /* user pushed PF3 */
DISCLAIMER: I have never used this method. I always set a variable
to either "SCAN" or "ALL" and ref it in the MODEL:
