Using Help

Help can be obtained by either typing HELP on the command line or pressing <PF1>.

tablesONLINE provides context-sensitive help when the cursor is positioned on a blank command line, general help and a list of possible commands is given. If the command line is blank and the cursor is positioned somewhere else on the screen, then the cursor position dictates the help that is offered. For a table editing screen, help is provided for the field that contains the cursor. For a Menu screen, help is provided for the menu option where the cursor is positioned.

All of the help messages in tablesONLINE are table-driven and may be modified by the user. For information on editing Help tables see Help Tables.
