When performing certain functions in tablesONLINE, you will find that there are fields that are protected. These fields contain data that cannot be changed by the user. If you are in an Identify Table screen, for instance, and wish to move through the fields on the screen, you will find that the cursor skips over these fields, moving directly to the next field that can be edited.
Although a field may be skipped over, there may still be help available that describes the contents of the field. To view help for a protected field, use the up and down arrow keys to move the cursor to the protected field and press <PF1> for help.
