The Stock Investor Pro Help System is a good place for new users to learn about the program. The Help System provides users with instructions on using the program’s primary functions, articles discussing the 60 stock screens that come with the program, and definitions of the data fields (Figure 2).
You can open the Help System while in Stock Investor Pro by pressing the <F1> key or by clicking on the Help menu and then selecting Contents and Index (Help—Contents and Index). The Help System can also be opened by clicking the Start button (from the Taskbar) and selecting Programs > AAII > Stock Investor Pro 4.5 Help.
We strongly recommend that you thoroughly read the Help System to familiarize yourself with the functions of Stock Investor Pro.
The Field Definitions section of the Help System provides definitions of all the data elements within the program. You can locate field definitions alphabetically or by category breakdown, as they appear in the program. Click on a data field name to bring up its definition (Figure 3). The calculation of the data field is also explained here, if appropriate.
If you require assistance while using a part of Stock Investor Pro, links to specific Help topics are provided in selected areas. Direct links to the Help System can be found at these locations:
