How to display a field's properties (screen, window, and control IDs; table and column name)

When you perform batch processing, set up report groups, or design reports, it is sometimes necessary to know a field's properties. Use the following procedure to display the screen ID, window ID, control ID, table name, and column name associated with a field.

Step 1.  Open the screen from the portal page menu.

Step 2.  Activate either Insert or Update mode.

Step 3.  Position the cursor in an editable field (other than a check box or list box).

Step 4.  Press and hold down the CTRL and SHIFT keys.

Step 5.  Click the left mouse button.

The screen ID, window ID, and control order ID [field number] displays, as well as the table name, column name, and field name.
