In this chapter, we introduced you to the Analyst interface and showed you how you can navigate within and work with objects in Analyst. We touched on the important Analyst objects and their functions. We discussed, in detail, how you can use libraries to organize objects, and offered you our approach to creating a solid library structure. We showed you how you can configure Analyst and enable additional program features. Finally, we discussed the various administration functions that let you manage libraries, optimize Analyst, search for BiFs and ODBC connections, and fix corrupt index files and references.
