    i am using mocha 5250 emulator…. so it doesn’t display message description… Press the 'Help' key. This is not the <F1> key nor the display file help key -- it's the PC help key because the VALUES() keyword works on the terminal device. Usually, the PC 'Help' key will be a 'Help' button on the menu bar for Mocha terminal emulators. The VALUES() keyword is rarely used since terminals have been mostly replaced by emulators. Tom

    how can i see the message help in personal communication emulator.. It's the same in every emulator. That is, press the key or click the button that you have configured as the PC 'Help' key. We don't know how your emulator is configured, so we don't know how you start the 'Help' process. Try the <ScrollLock> key. Tom

    personal communication emulator don’t have the ‘Help key’.. it’s having only help menu.. Yes, it does have a 'Help' key available. Your configuration might have disabled it. Look in your Keyboard configuration to see which key is configured for 'Help'. Edit-> Preferences-> Keyboard... Then click 'Customize...'. On customizing panel, select Actions-> Find... on the menu bar. Under Functions:, select 'Help' and click 'Find'. Any key that has the 'Help' function assigned should be highlighted on the keyboard map. Tom

    i used version 4.1 for windows 98 personal communication… With something that old, you will be lucky if anyone has any information. The 'Find' option might not exist in that version. If necessary, you can click every key in the keyboard map to see if any of them show the 'Help' function. Try the F1 key. I think <Alt-F1> might be the default for it. Tom
