I have an application that uses windows that contain a
table as part of the window, usualy in the bottom half
of the window.

This table contains a subset of the data for a record,
based on a query process.

If this table contains more than one record, when a
record is highlighted, the top half of the window is
populated with an expanded number of fields for the
record. It actualy works pretty well.

However, I have a phrasing questions:

Is the table "in" the window or "on" the window, as I
would use it in the following sentence:

The table in the "Notebook Types" window will be
populated with the records that satisfy the search
