No position number may occur twice in this column, but gaps are allowed. They do not affect how the selection screen looks.

Example: An elementary search help contains parameters PAR1, PAR2, PAR3 and PAR4. Field SPos is defined as folllows:

    Parameter    SPos

    PAR1    3

    PAR2    0 or ' '

    PAR3    1

    PAR4    7

Parameters PAR3, PAR1 and PAR4 then appear in this order in the dialog box for restricting values.
