FORMAT primary command

The FORMAT primary command allows you to change the current display format without having to overtype the FORMAT field. If no format type is supplied, the default depends on the current display format. If you are in SNGL format, the default is TABL format. If you are in TABL format, the default is SNGL format. In other display formats, there is no default and a error message is issued when no parameter is supplied.

The abbreviated forms of the FORMAT primary command (FS, FT, FC, FH, FL) are also available as prefix commands (see Editor panel).
