Create a New Menu

To create a new menu, create a new row in the menu table for each option that is required on the new menu using the procedures described above. The Screen Name field for each of these new rows should be set to the name of your new menu.

Once the menu has been created, you need to provide a route so that the menu can be accessed by users. There are two ways to do this:

  • Add a new menu option to one of your existing menus, with the Dynamic View Suffixfield set to M and the Transfer menufield set to the name of your new menu.
  • Make changes to the Application Control Tableso that the new menu becomes the initial menu for a user or a group of users. This function is usually restricted so that only your tableBASE administrator can perform it. For further details, refer to the tableBASE Administration Guide.
