Here is the field definition...

Field "OSC_Info" {
        Type    StringType;
        Flags   general, locate;

No, it didn't show up in the smart-set GUI.  Is it supposed to?

I was able to create a smart-set using it though, by replacing the
field-definition in the "Advanced" tab window...

i.e changed... ["SNMP sysLocation"~"^GW:Server*$"]
    to         ["OSC_Info"~"^GW:Server*$"]

And then created the smartset called OSC_Info.

Thanks for your help.

When you created the field, did you give it the flag 'Locate'?  Just
a guess. That flag is required to enable searching on the field. Does
the field show up in the smartset editor?

I am trying to add a new "tip" to the list of tips that can
be displayed.  This is for a text-field I call OSC_Info that
I've creatd in the ovwdb database, and populate via some

It appears the file \usr\OV\newconfig\console\tips.conf
contains the information I want, but if I add an entry
such as...

"OSC Information"  = OVWDB OSC_Info

And restart the gui... nothing happens.

How do I add a new window tip to NetView on NT?
