Reading the Status Line

The status line is a good way to see what is going on. The status line is divided into panels (numbered left to right):

Panel Purpose
1 Activity Indicator
Red - Error/Failure
Green - Ready/Last Operation Succeeded
Yellow - Working Please Wait
2 Message (See below)
3 Zoom Level
4 Grid Position
5 Data File in use
6 Normal, Partitioned, Ready To Tear
7 Problem Name
8 Mark Set in Use

Reading various status line messages:

Clicking in a grid cell (or pressing space) causes the status line to display information about it. Notes show up as a dot before the value NoteDot.gif (895 bytes). The status line is interpreted as follows
Row <--- Prerequisite Column : Cell Value : Note

StatNote.gif (2366 bytes)

Clicking on a row header (where the row names are) the status line is deciphered as follows:
[Selected|Generated|Excluded|(nothing)] Row --> Note

e.g. wpe18F.jpg (1848 bytes)
