every possible HP42S user has already been, at least once, fairly new to programming it too, so... welcome!
Now for the answer. Keep in mind that the IND (for Indexed, or indirect) is added only when the function (VARMENU, in this case) allows it to. And to add the IND after VARMENU, you should use the [.] key. Prior to go ahead, letīs call [SHIFT] key the prefix, golden key right above the [EXIT] key. Thus, considering that the calculator is already in PRGM mode and you can see step # 26 (whatever you have on it):
press [VARM] menu key (actually [1/X]); you should see 27 VARMENU "_
press [.]; you should see 27 VARMENU IND _ _
press [ENTER] key to bring ALPHA menu back;
key in FCN;
If all goes well, you should have your
27 VARMENU IND "FCN" in the LCD by now. If not, let us know.
