          Appeal No. 1997-3224                                                        
          Application No. 08/231,531                                                  

          claims pending in the present application.  Claims 9, 20 and                
          21 have been canceled.                                                      
               The invention relates to a computer interface system.  In              
          particular, the computer system includes a computer interface               
          that automatically generates graphical representations of                   
          computer operations linked together by graphical                            
          representations of functional relationships.  On page 24 of                 
          the specification, Appellants disclose examples of screen                   
          displays of the present invention while referring to Figures                
          5A to 5F.  Appellants disclose that a new data set may be                   
          generated from data contained in the Regdata data set 204                   
          illustrated in Figure 5A to create a new data set titled                    
          Component Anova.  When the new data set is created and the                  
          regression analysis is performed, the interface program 11 of               
          the present invention automatically generates corresponding                 
          graphical data flow diagram (GDFD) elements as illustrated in               
          Figure 5C with links to show the data set from which the new                
          GDFD elements 222, 224 were generated.  Thus, as illustrated                
          in Figure 5C, when the adjusted response graph is generated, a              
          corresponding graph element represented by the adjusted                     
          response graph element 220 is added to the GDFD.  An arrow
