Starting Update Assist

You can create applications with Update Assist that add records, update records, or delete records against any data source for which you have read/write access. Data navigation and input validation are automatic. This means you get an update application with no need to design forms, or to write navigation, validation, or update procedures.

To start using Update Assist, do the following:

  1. Open a project.
  2. Right-click any Master File in the project path and click Update Assist.
  3. Follow the directions in the Update Assist dialog boxes.

The four Update Assist dialog boxes correspond to the four steps for generating Update Assist applications.
