To insert a function into the SVB program editor, select/highlight it, and then, from the shortcut menu, select Copy, or use the standard CTRL+C convention to copy the text of the item.

Note that the Function Browser dialog is modeless, meaning that you can access STATISTICA while the Function Browser dialog is displayed. This is useful because it enables you to edit your macro directly and to utilize the functionality of the Function Browser concurrently.
