 I'm not sure this is what you mean, but you could try
setting a "text view port" using the VIEW PRINT command..
You do it as follows:

VIEW PRINT 5 to 23

  Everthing above line 5, and below 23 will remain
unchanged.. You can then use CLS 2, to clear just the text
view port (in this case 5 to 23) if you use QB's on-line
help and read CLS it will give other examples.

   Hope this helps....
