I am a new iSeries programmer. Can you give please me the code for loading a single page subfile and how to handle the page up and page down key in that program? I also need the DDS Subfile record format for the display file.
Look in the manuals. The first thing you must learn is how to read and understand the manuals. I still use them regularly after 25 years -- that, plus vast intelligence and the ability to steal good-looking code is the secret of success on the iSeries.
Don't use single-page subfiles anyway unless there is a very good reason. Use self-extending subfiles right from the start and never look back.
