Data Screen Area
The area to the left of the menu panel is where the data will be displayed for editing.
Each data screen will have its own button bar which will contain the name of the screen. Any special buttons associated with that data screen will usually appear on that bar. If a screen is subdivided into tabbed pages, it is quite possible that each tabbed page would have its own button bar.
