Changing the Data in an Input Field
You can change data in an input field by either:
- Switching the data entry mode to Overwrite, and typing over the data in the field, or
- Highlighting the entry in the Insert mode and typing the new data
Some input fields contain data that is for display only; you cannot change or delete the data in these input fields. Input fields whose background is the same color as the background of the screen contain data that you cannot change.
Use the cursor to highlight the existing content of the field.
Type in the new data.
The entire content of the field is replaced by whatever you type.
Make sure you are in the Overwrite mode (OVR in the status bar). If you are not, press
to switch to this mode.
Place the cursor at the point in the data where you want to start overwriting.
Type over the old data. You can use the
key to delete data to the right of the cursor.
To change other input fields on the screen, repeat steps 2 and 3.
