Adding, Modifying, and Deleting Parameter Records


Records are accessed by the internal record number  which is unique for each record. It is the parameter TID. Records are accessed by one or more key parameters that uniquely identify a record in the table. When initially creating a database file and when adding a record, you will be prompted for the values. The prompt will cycle through the parameters until you enter ; which stores the record. RETURN will show the values for the record on which you are working. The default value is NODATA null . After the record has been stored (i.e. after ;), you will be prompted for another record. When you are finished adding records, and want to make other changes, enter \ to get back to the edit options. This also applies to the modify and delete options.

To delete a record, use the Delete Record  option and the number of the record that you want to delete.
