Thanks Jason,
yes - I've been watching a monitor on this and I can see detail set is
reming active with cursor opening activity...
I'm afraid I was locked into the old way of always seeing the detail close,
then re-open when the master scrolls. No matter I am quite happy with this
now too.

Once a detail dataset is Active it remains Active even when the master
dataset is changing from record to record.

Technically, on the server there is a new cursor opened but that doesn't
necessarily have to correspond with the dataset itself doing an open and

There clearly is a separation between what the server requires and what
shows up in the client dataset mechanism.
