  2. Locate the item of interest in the list. See Search a List for information on sorting and searching lists.

Some item numbers in the list may show a small arrow marker on the right side. The arrow marker links to more information about the item. The information may include an item picture, an MSDS, and / or contract information for the item. Set your cursor over the arrow to see the type of information available. Click the arrow to view the information.

Field values in the list -- such as an item number -- may be underlined. An underline means that the value links to other information on the web, such as an item picture or vendor web page. Click the underlined field to view links that you can select.
