The default is the database control AMP, which is normally AMP 0.
The -v options must be lower case.

Usage Notes

When a DBW application window is not specified, or the specified window is not available, the utility starts in the first available DBW application window.

Select a vproc number based on the particular utility being run. For example, if the utility you are starting provides information on a specific AMP or vproc, be sure to start the utility on that AMP or vproc.

Example: Starting a utility in one of the DBW application windows

The following example starts the Vproc Manager utility in window 3.
