Entering Online Commands

You may enter STN commands by:

To enter commands in the Command Window:

  1. Select Command Window from the Online menu or click the Command Window tool button from the STN Online and Results Toolbar.

  2. Keep the Lock button from the right toolbar of the Command Window in the locked position.  In the locked mode, you can type a series of commands and edit them.  

  3. To send the commands in the Command Window to STN, use the buttons from the right toolbar of the Command Window.  You can send one command line, or multiple command lines, at a time.

To insert a command file into the Command Window:

  1. Click the Open button located on the left toolbar.  

  2. Open a command file name in the dialog to insert the contents of the command file into the Command Window.

Click the Save button located on the left toolbar in the Command Window to save the contents of the Command Window to a file.  

To clear the contents of the Command Window, click the Clear button  located on the left toolbar in the Command Window.

Click the Command Window tool button to disable the Command Window.

Note:  The Command Window runs a list of STN commands and simple STN Express scripts (i.e., those that specify level 1 and level 2 prompts), but it does not understand the full STN Express script language described in Using Scripts.  Thus, the Command Window will not run a Script File created by the Create Search Term Script File feature available in Version 8.5.
