Menu Tables

The first Application Driving table that we will look at is the Menu table. Menu tables control the flow of the application. By editing this table, you can modify existing menu rows, create new menu rows or create a complete new menu screen.

To edit this table, select Option 1 – EDIT MENU TABLE from the Application Developer’s menu (see Figure 161), leaving the key field on the table identification screen blank. The system displays a screen similar to Figure 163.

The rows in the menu table are sequentially organized by Screen Name and Select Symbol. When the menu is displayed in an application, the rows included in the menu are displayed in sequence by select symbol. For example, the rows whose screen name is APPLDEVL form the selections in the Application Developer’s menu we saw in Figure 161.
