Find First       Description: Bgn

The Find First Command locates the first record in the main file being accessed in the current program based on the index being used.  For example: If you are in the Customer Manager Program, and the cursor is located in the Customer Name field, pressing the Find First button will cause the program to display the first company record (based on the company name) from the Customer Master File.  If you are in the Customer Lookup program and have it sorting by account, the Find First Button would cause the program to locate and highlight the Customer with the first account number in the system.  The HOME key on the keyboard is usually also mapped to execute this command but will this keyboard command will only work in list based programs (pressing the HOME key in the Customer Manager Customer Name field will not cause the system to do anything, but pressing it in the Customer Lookup will cause the system to find the first record in the lookup).
