    Charles, from what I can tell, when you click on this button, and the tack is pointed down, this deactivates the hotspot in the detailed data. For example, you do F4 on a field and it shows you company codes, click the tack down, and then double click on one of the company codes, usually it would except this and close that window and put the value into your screen field, but when the tack is down it stays on that F4 help, you must put it up again to all the functionality to come back. Untill today, I never played with it and didn't know what it was for, I really I don't see a point now, either. Thanks for the learning experience.
