AID Keys

The following are logical representations of the keys used in the Transition Action, Detail Screen Inputs, and Next Page Inputs fields of the Step and Table Properties. These keys are global in scope, unless otherwise indicated.

Note Task Builder contains a translator that formats all AID key designations. It is important that you enter the AID key in the correct format, for example {F8}. If you enter an 8 in the value field, the translator will correctly read {F8}. However, if you enter F8, the translator reads F{F8}, which is an invalid command. Aid keys, such as {Enter} or {System Clear}, must have the first letter of each word capitalized. By correctly entering the AID key as listed below, you will avoid navigation errors.
