A main window is made up of an upper main area and a temporarily blended-in sub area in the lower window half. In the main area you can switch from list view to form view. The title of the main window contains information about the displayed and the parent dataset.
The list view contains all datasets selected during a search in a list. The marked dataset is displayed in the form view. After switching to the form view, the dataset information are updated in the tree. You can also edit and delete in the list view.

Located on the left side of the search window, you will find entry fields for search conditions and search criteria. The results of a search are shown in a list on the right side of the search window.
With the help of the allocation window, one or more datasets are linked to other datasets. Generally, these datasets are of different entities (like when assigning a contact person to an activity). Like in the business partner relation, they can belong to the same entity.
The allocation window is always opened to the dataset to which the other one(s) is(are) to be assigned to.
The allocation window mainly consists of two lists. One contains a pool of datasets which were selected through the search function. By moving datasets from this list to the other, a dataset is assigned. The second list contains the assigned datasets.

The scroll bar (CTRL++ and CTRL+-) below the text has a zoom function and enlarges / minimizes the display size of the text. During a session, the last selected settings are restored when opening a memo window. Only once CURSOR-CRMis started again, the basic setting is used again.
A double click on the memo field opens the memo window. Close the memo dialog with OK. This also copies your changes into the memo field. If you want to discard your changes, close the window with Cancel.
