4.8.8 Exit from the SEU Utility

Once finished with the process's HELP text use function key 1 to exit from SEU. A screen like this will be presented:

The SEU exit option will be pre-filled to 1 (exit without update) if you did not change the field HELP text in any way. Otherwise it will be pre-filled to 2 (exit and update member).

Normally you would only ever use option 1 or option 2 to exit from SEU and return to LANSA. Option 6 may be used to return to SEU and continue editing. Other options can be used if desired, but you may find that any changes made are lost and the process or function's HELP text remains unchanged.

Note that the member, file and library always contain HELPWORK, HELPWORK and QTEMP respectively. This applies no matter what process or function'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 process or function'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.
