FREE primary command

In Browse, View, and Edit, the FREE command removes any scrolling lock on one or more fields. If a field has a scrolling lock, the field remains in a fixed position on the display in TABL display format when you scroll to the left or right. You can set scrolling locks with the HOLD editor primary command or by using the H prefix command in the template editor.
