In many fields, the F3 key starts the lookup feature. This section explains how to use the F3 feature. In this example, we look for the appropriate Tendered By identifier.
You MUST use the F3 key to find any Tendered By, including walkin shippers and consignees. Avoid using MISC as the Tendered By code.
Although we use Tendered By in this example, you can also use the F3 lookup program to find many different stored values, such as reservation, warehouse receipt, or airway bill number. Whenever F3 works in a field the hint <F3> to lookup appears at the bottom left of the window.
When you press F3 a prompt window appears with the
possible methods (alternate identifiers) you can use to search for a record to
complete the field. Figure 1 shows the prompt window that has lookup identifiers for Tendered By shipper, consignee, or agent.
