HOW TO FIND A SUPPLIED TABLE                                                  
 Note: If you search by MIB name, you may need to try several                 
        versions of the MIB name. A common name of the MIB (like              
        ``MIB-II'' or ``RMON MIB'') may not be in the description.            
        SAS/CPE names MIB tables after the name used in the MIB               
        itself. For example, the opening line of the MIB defined by           
        RFC1271 (also known as the RMON MIB) is                               
                  RFC1271-MIB DEFINITIONS                                     
        Thus SAS/CPE identifies tables in this MIB with the string            
        RFC1271-MIB. The name of each individual table/group (like            
        ``ICMP'' or ``alarmTable'') is also in the description field.         
        For example, the description field for table HN2ICM begins            
        nb-mibII.icmp and for table HRMATM begins                             
USER-DEFINED TABLE NAMING CONVENTION                                          
  Begin the names of user-defined tables with the character U.  Names         
  must be exactly six alphanumeric characters.
