Yes, Alternate inquiry is good, for those who may not have yet
discovered it (it is buried), it is found by going to COM, inquiring
on open orders, F22 for history, F22 for Alternate Inquiry.
Select by customer number for both open & closed orders.
But no quotes here!

If Alt Inq kills your machine, check for PTF's, there were
some at some particular level, but not R5 as I recall.

but wasn't the original question about BROWSER?

But regardless, it does point out the basic flaw in MAPICS,
it is very singular in the way you access information.
You want this piece of info go there, want that go here!
No consolidated, intelligent screens, it is as if they
programmed the header/detail file relationship right
into the displays, oh wait - they did!
Typical programmer, never thought of eliciting user input...but I
digress...
