The purpose of this function is to show the user the latest unexpired entry from the MOTD table. The most recent entry is shown, with scrolling links made visible if there are entries with earlier dates. Entries which have expired (where the end date is in the past) will not be shown, nor will entries which have been linked with a ROLE which has not been assigned to the current User.
This form is automatically activated from the Menu/Home Page after passing through the Logon screen, but only if there are messages available.
For a list of fields and their descriptions please refer to Update MOTD.
For a complete description of how this type of form works please see Transaction Pattern ENQUIRE 1.
