Inquiry Screens
TINS Inquiry Menu (INQMEN)

The TINS Inquiry Menu (INQMEN) screen provides a menu of common inquiry screens. The INQMEN menu also lists the screen ID for the screens. Most inquiry screens can be accessed through the INQMEN screen except:

  • Payee Name Search (PAYNAM)
  • Multi-Tax Summary (MTSUMM)
  • TINS Bankruptcy File (BKRUPD)

You can recall the INQMEN menu at any time by typing in the T-code INQMEN on the command line, also known as Line 1, located at the upper-left of the screen.
