  3. Select the Technical information button (hammer/spanner), or press F9 if you are using the old style help dialog screen
  4. Double-click on the data element field
  5. Double-click on the domain field (provided it isn't something like CHAR1, otherwise go to step 6)
  6. Select the where-used button (button with little yellow square with 3 arrows radiating)
  7. Select indirect application from the pop-up box
  8. Double-click on the Database Tables line in the next pop-up box
