My screen keeps disappearing

I have one simple screen format displayed. When a user presses F4, a subfile appears on top of the initial screen. The problem: The initial screen disappears. After the user selects the subfile record, the initial screen reappears. How can I have the initial screen stay still under the subfile screen?

Place a single record format in your display file with a single field and a single keyword. You never have to do anything with the format, but your window will overlay the screen.
