Using this format it is possible to "initialize" the chosen process or function's HELP text by copying the HELP text from another field, process or function (within a process).

In addition it is possible to initialize the chosen process or function's HELP text to a "standard form".

The "standard form" that comes with the shipped version of LANSA can be changed. Refer to Formats, Values and Codes in the Technical Reference Guide for details.

If you use a "standard form" for the help, you can alter it, using this procedure:

1.  Sign on as the LANSA security officer and invoke LANSA.

2.  Review or change the HELP text associated with field STDFORM.
