Lightning Fast

stop-watch

Programming in QuestView is light years faster than anything you can do in DFU, so you can save untold person-hours of code writing.

  • Simply define the screen elements, data fields, function keys, and other QuestView elements you'd like to see in your program, and press [F6] to create the program. Seconds later, AS/400 users can call that program and utilize all the functionality you've created in the QuestView program.
  • These programs let programmers quickly delegate many data maintenance scenarios which previously required specific authorities and AS/400 programming knowledge. Now you have time for more QuestView programs and other things that require your attention.
  • Fix Decimal Data Errors in zoned and packed fields in seconds by viewing numerical data side-by-side with the underlying hexadecimal code, or simply by scanning for the error.
  • View the relationships of logical files and physical files right from within QuestView... as well as key fields and select/omit specifications for each of the related join-logicals and multiple-format logicals. No more switching back and forth, looking up relationship information.
