Getting Started

This chapter provides the basics for using tablesONLINE. It begins with a broad overview of logging in to, and exiting from, tablesONLINE, followed by a discussion of common facilities, such as the help system, PF key definitions, security features, and customization of the user environment. The remainder of the chapter discusses the Menu screen.

tablesONLINE allows each organization to reconfigure the PF keys used by tablesONLINE/CICS. All of the descriptions and references to PF keys in this guide refer to the delivered default PF key values. If your organization has already customized these keys, you may find that the PF keys do not perform the functions described in this guide. Please check with your tableBASE administrator.
