Choosing which columns are visible helps reduce or eliminate horizontal scrolling and removes visual clutter so only the desired data is shown.
Save the layout with the preferred columns so AWdb uses that selection as the default. Temporarily hide columns to create an ad-hoc report; then when finished, quickly restore the last saved layout.
There are two ways to update the visibility of a column:
|1.||Set the visibility of the Column Header Band for the associated column. Click the button to the far left of the header bands. In the list, check the box to show a header band. Clear the box to hide it. Example: in the Clubbers Module, the Person ID, Filing Name, First Name, Last Name, and Preferred Name columns are associated with the Name header band. If the Name header band is hidden, the listed columns will also be hidden.|
|2.||Set the visibility of the Column Header (the label above each column.) Click the button to the far left of the headers. In the list, check the box to show a column. Clear the box to hide it.|
Besides controlling which columns are visible, columns can be rearranged. An entire band can be moved, or a column can be moved within the band. Drag a column or header band to the desired location and drop it when the green arrows appear showing it is a valid drop location.
The width of header bands and columns can also be adjusted. Drag the right side of a header band or a column to adjust the width. When adjusting the width of a column, the width of the header band might need to be adjusted first.
