Inquiry Screens
Inquiry Direction Message Keys

Once a TINS screen is displayed, you can navigate using the function keys listed at the bottom of the screen.

  • These direction message keys may allow you to page forward, return to a previous menu or exit that screen.
  • Some keyboards may require you to press alternate keys or a combination of keys to accomplish a function.
  • The function keys may change from inquiry screen T-code to T-code.
  • When a function is not displayed, it is not available for that screen.

Note: TINS may also display information, warning and error messages at the bottom of each screen. For more information, see Exception (Error) Codes.
