RKP--The relative key position:the displacement from the beginning of a data record to its key field.

AXRKP--Indicates, for an alternate index, the offset, from the beginning of the base cluster's data record, at which the alternate-key field begins.

above excerpted from B.2.3 ATT: Attributes Group
