This facility allows you to build temporary lists of processes (and associated functions) known to LANSA and display them on the screen. From these displayed lists processes and/or functions can be chosen for inclusion into your document.

These lists can either be built from all processes, or only from processes that have a certain generic name.

When any process is included into a displayed list all its associated functions are also shown for possible selection.

A displayed list may not fit on one screen. This is indicated by a "+" sign in the lower right of the screen. In such cases use the roll up and roll down keys to scroll backwards and forwards through the displayed list.

Processes and/or functions shown in the displayed list which are already included in the document are shown with an "X" beside them. The "X" cannot be removed. Thus a process or function cannot be excluded from the document by using this facility. Use the option "Review/exclude objects in document" to do this. This option is described in detail in a later section.

When you want to choose a process or function from the displayed list for inclusion into the document enter an "Y" beside it in the column headed "Sel".

An option is provided to automatically include into the document all fields that are used by a function. To do this enter a "Y" in the column headed "Include all Fields" beside the chosen function.

Additionally, an option is provided to automatically include into the document all file definitions that are used by a chosen function. To do this enter a "Y" in the column headed "Include all Files" beside the chosen function.

When you have completed using this facility, use the Cancel function key to return to the "Review/Change Selected Objects" Menu.
