Abstract

Disclosed is a new end user interface design which allows OS/2* Query Manager Panels to be designed without the need for assigning artificial table names. The present design uses an artificial name (ROOT, SUB, LOOKUP1, etc.) according to the use of the table within the Panel. By avoiding the need to assign this artificial name, the proposed interface is easier to use and provides better prompting for the end user.
