The SEU exit option - change/create member, will be pre-filled to N if you did not change the field HELP text in any way. Otherwise it will be pre-filled to Y.

Normally you would use the option "Y" to change/create member and exit from SEU to return to LANSA. Notice also the option to return to editing. Other options can be used if desired, but you may find that any changes made are lost and the field's HELP text remains unchanged.

Note that the member, file and library always contain HELPWORK, HELPWORK and QTEMP respectively. This applies no matter what field's HELP text is being edited. This is a special temporary source file that LANSA has created in library QTEMP. These values can be changed if required, but again you may find that any changes are lost and the field's HELP text remains unchanged.

If SEU is not available on your IBM i machine, the help text will be edited by EDTF. When finished editing the help text use function key 2 or 3 to save any changes made. Use function key 3 to exit from EDTF.

You will be asked: Do you wish to save the changes made to HELPWORK? Y/N.

Reply Y to save changes to the LANSA Help files.
