    You can display specific views in MainView Explorer in a couple different ways. If you are transferring the display from one product to a different product it will be necessary to preface the view name with a context command, as follows:

    CON context product;view,

    context is the target or targets you wish to display in the resulting view.  MainView is distributed with default contexts of ALL and a context for each target in the product.
    product is the name of the product to which you are transferring to display the specific view.  Examples of the product names are: MVMVS, MVDB2, MVIP, MVCICS, etc.
    view is the name of the specific view you want to display.

    The first and easiest way is to enter the view name into the command box at the bottom of the MainView Explorer screen then press SEND:

    If there is no command box present, such as when displaying containers or charts, right-click in the background of the display and select ENTER COMMAND from the list, as follows:

    The second way to display specific views is by locating the view in the navigation tree on the left side of the display.  The views are listed in the bottom left tree while products and contexts are set in the upper left tree.  It is necessary to set the product/context to populate the navigation tree in the lower left.  The following is a graphic of the navigation trees:

    It is recommended you search the folders in the navigation tree in the lower left tree for your specific view in the following sequence:

    1. Cust User folder
    3. Cust Site folder
    5. EZExplorer folder
    7. Folders arranged by functional area
