In an CA IDMS DQF session you can access any information screen by using the menus or by transferring directly to any detail information screen. Exhibit 1.4 illustrates a typical sequence of events for a user who is new to the facility.
The session begins at the Dictionary Entity Main Menu. From that menu the Record Menu is selected, and then the Record/Element cross-reference screen.
While viewing Record/Element cross-references, the user selects a specific element and transfers directly to basic information on that element.
From the Element/Basic Information screen the user jumps back to the Record/Element information by simply entering a combination code (REC.ELE) for the screen, because CA IDMS DQF remembers the current record name and version.
When enough information on specific elements is gathered, the user transfers to the RECORD/DIALOG cross-reference screen, to determine which dialogs use the record.
Pressing a PF key produces the Dictionary Entity Main Menu, showing all of the entities available for further selection.
