  5. Choose .

    All distributors in the vidsales database are displayed.

  6. Scroll down the list and double-click on the row for distributor ID 3. The Distributor Orders screen opens and displays the information associated with the distributor.

  7. Double-click on the Order_num 1004.

  9. Press TAB between each entry. The totals are updated appropriately.

You can add, update, or delete order items. Or delete the entire order by choosing the Delete Order button.

You can always find something more to do that will improve an application. Continue to enhance the screens—for instance, add a Details push button to invoke the send_order_data procedure from the Distributor Orders screen, or add a Done button to the Order Item Detail screen that will take the user back to the Select Distributor screen.
