This example generates a directory of flight connections. To define this list, proceed as follows:

  2. Choose the DEMO_FLBOOKING (Flight Bookings) InfoSet and choose Copy.

    The Field Selection series of screens appears.

  3. Assign a title and a list format.

  5. Choose the Basic List function.

    The Query Layout Design screen appears. On this screen, you start to define the basic list.
