Hi DragonicDefson,

Welcome to our forums.

Regarding your questions:-

1) The characters 'FN' are added to some variables to indicate that they return a value from a user-defined function.

2) BID generally appears in the Help or Langauge Reference in regard to buttons.
    BID just means replace BID with the button number, either a number or a variable holding the number:-

    For instance - if your button is the third button on the card - then BID = 3

    so the command to change the third button's view might be ButtonSetView(3,1)

    You can see the button or other control number while selecting the button/control and looking on the Properties window.

3) Finding which words are entered into a field and then checking against database contents is quite advanced but there are
    demo projects to help. To do this you would need to understand how field events and database commands work.

Probably the easiest way to learn HyperNext is to look at this forum topic:

The QuickStart pdf that comes with HyperNext teaches the basics of writing programs and running them:

Also the 'Gettting Started" section of the forum is a good place to start:

I hope this helps you
