Using QMF forms
QMF automatically generates form panels when a table is displayed or a SELECT query is run without specifying a form. The resulting report is based on default formatting provided by QMF.
You can see the default form by typing
DISPLAY FORM.MAIN (or
FORM) after you run a query without specifying a form name
on the RUN command.
Each form panel has entry areas in which information is added or changed. In the instructions in this information, a letter is assigned to each entry area on each form panel (such as C ) and corresponds to the description following the panel. If there is a default value, it is shown in the entry area on the panel. Each entry area is described in terms of its effect on reports. If an entry area affects charts, that description follows.
