Eine Auskunftsitzung wird durch die ENDE-Taste abgeschlossen. Jede Abfrage beginnt mit einem Kode, gefolgt von der ENTER-Taste. Der erste Teil der Informationen zu diesem Kode wird auf dem Bildschirm angezeigt.

Einzelne Daten-Felder dieser Satze werden im Baum deshalb nicht dargestellt. Die Festlegung des logischen Zugriffs spielt beim Ableiten der DSDs ein groGe Rolle, da dadurch die unterste Ebene der DSDs bestimmt wird. Bei Batchanwendungen ist das meist der iibliche Datensatz.
