Icons and descriptions in IBM Sterling Business Center application user interface

In the IBM® Sterling Business Center application, you can perform certain tasks by clicking the corresponding icons in the UI.

For example, you can click adjacent the Date field to select a date. However, a few icons only indicate a condition, and cannot be used to perform tasks. For example, pertaining to a column in a grid indicates that the column is both an editable field and a mandatory field.
