Once a full, partial or generic key has been supplied for a browse request a search is made for all matching records in the file. If one or more records are found a screen similar in layout (but not content) to the following example will be displayed.
This example is the result of a generic search on a name and address file using name 'ACME'. The user also indicated that only the name code, the name and post code were to be displayed on the browse screen:
If more records were found that can be displayed on one screen use the ROLL keys to roll backwards and forwards through the list.
To select a record for full display, change or delete, enter any non-blank character beside it in the column headed 'Sel'. In this example it can be seen that the user has selected the 'ACME ENGINEERING COMPANY' record for full display.
