Detail Segment/Index File information screen during lookup

After pressing <F9> for a lookup for either Detail Segments or Index Files, press the number of the Segment/File you are interested in and then press the right <Ctrl> key.  An information screen will appear with the basic information about the Segment/File you have chosen.  A brief list of the fields available within that Segment/File will be displayed.

This comes in handy especially for selecting Index Files.  The subscripts involved in the File will be displayed.  Sometimes there is also a documentation from Meditech about the Detail Segment/Index File.
