Abstract

Disclosed is a new end user interface design for defining the connecting column relationship between the Root table and the Sub table in an OS/2* Query Manager Panel. Presently, the end user specifies a two character code on the line where the connecting column for the tables is defined. The proposed interface has the end user select the relationship from a list presented on a new screen which is automatically presented following the definition of the tables used on the Panel.
