  4. Click a message to open the Message form.

  5. On the History tab, review the information in the Description and Usage fields to understand the purpose of the message.

  6. Click Actions > View references to display a list of rules that call this message.

  7. Click a rule to open it, and then review the conditions that cause the rule to call the message.
