Good morning, I have a problem on a 8.3 installation, where I wish to use the STATUS DEFAULT line, of the Windows session. So for instance:- STATUS DEFAULT "F1:Continue". The F1: Continue does not appear. If I do a:- UPDATE var HELP "Help text" Then the help message appears. 1. Does the STATUS DEFAULT and HELP use the same section of the screen. 2. If yes, any thoughts on what basic mistake I have made. I did wonder if it was related to STATUS-AREA? Thank you.
