    I there a way to 'reload' or 'refresh' a menu. I'm running into a problem as described below :
    After a user logs on, I pull up a menu that has an initial application, which is a grid of contractors. There are 4 other selections on the menu.
    I want to disable or delete 4 four selections, until the user has selected a contractor. IE Bid Bonds, Final Bonds, Work in Progress, and Financial should be disabled
    until the user clicks on the pencil to select/edit a contractor. After a contractor is selected, those selections should become active. However, all the menu macros like sc_menu_disable, sc_menu_delete will only run in menu application, and I don't see a way to 'reload' the menu. I'm sure I could do it with a dashboard or similar, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel. Users
    are very specific as to what they want the screens to look like. Thanks for any advice.

    I would initially load a global variable as something like con_selected = 0
    If the global variable is 0 I would use the sc_menu_disable (use your_menu_reference_here)
    Then when a contractor is selected I would set the con_selected = 1 and reload back to the menu.

    just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the response. That's the first thing I tried. But I would like to keep the contractor edit screen that is active when they select the contractor. When sc_redir(mainmenu), that screen goes away. I'm sure there's a workaround, but like I just don't want to do a workaround if I'm just missing something simple (that happens often .
