WRKOBJTXT       WORK OBJECT TEXT                       TAAOBLC

The Work Object Text  command provides a simple means  of reviewing and
cleaning up  text for objects.  A  subfile of one or more  objects in a
library  is displayed and allows a direct  change to the text.  Various
selection criteria  exists.   Options  exist  to display,  change,  and
delete  the  objects  along  with  an  option  to  display  the  object

*OBJMGT to the object is required to change the text description.

A typical command would be:

            WRKOBJTXT    LIB(xxx)

All  objects in  the library  would be displayed  and the  current text
would appear which could be keyed over to change the value.

When the display appears,  the objects are  in sequence by name  within
the  actual object  type.    This differs  from  the  WRKOBJ or  DSPLIB
displays  which arrange the  objects by  name within the  internal code
for object  type.   The unique  approach for  WRKOBJTXT allows  you  to
position to  a name within an  object type or  at the beginning  of the
object type.

Not all object  types are supported by a DSP  command or a CHG command.
In some cases a WRK command is used if provided by the system.

WRKOBJTXT escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
