Input Options

The following input options apply to defining or changing other processes on a process's main menu.

Display Sequence

Is used to nominate the relative order in which the attached process or function should be displayed. Enter a number in the range 1 to 999 that indicates the required display order of the process or function relative to other attached processes or functions.

Attached Process

Indicates the name of the process that is to be attached to the current process (i.e. the one being worked on).

The name of the process to be attached must be nominated when attaching a process or when directly attaching a single function.

Note that the process nominated does not have to exist. If it does not currently exist a warning message will be issued.

Attached Function

Indicates either the name of the function that is to be directly attached to the current process (i.e. the one being worked on) or indicates that all functions in the process should be attached.

To directly attach a function to the process specify the name of the function.

To attach all functions (i.e. attach the entire process) specify *ALL as the attached function name.

Note that the function nominated does not have to exist. If it does not currently exist a warning message will be issued.

Description

This output field indicates the description of the attached process or function that will appear on the current process's main menu (i.e. the process being worked on).

If a single function from another process has been attached then the description associated with that function will be displayed.

If an entire process (attached function = *ALL) has been attached then the description associated with the process will be displayed.

If the attached process or function does not currently exist then a message will be displayed in the description area indicating that the description is not currently available.
