ConQuest Help Menu

A large amount of on-line help available in the form of HTML pages along with a set of tutorials.

If the internal CDS browser (Netscape) has not been configured under the Options menu, then the first time Help Index or Tutorials is chosen, a configuration box may appear.

Help Index

The Help Index consists of two windows - the left window contains the searchable index and the right window contains the information.


There are 10 tutorials available ranging from simple searches to more complex queries.

Clicking on any tutorial causes the internal CDS browser (Netscape) to open and display the information.

Each tutorial page consists of 4 sections:-

  1. Objectives
  2. Steps Required
  3. The Example
  4. Menu Commands Required
