Working with Grid Layouts

Once a preferred grid setup is created, save the layout so those customizations do not have to be repeated each time that grid is used.


Grid layouts are saved per user. Make sure each person has a unique AWdb user account so users don't change each other's preferred settings!

From the Grid menu, use the following options to maintain the grid layouts:

Save Current Grid Layout - for the grid layout view that is typically used.  When AWdb starts, the grid defaults to this layout.
Reset Grid Layout - return to the normal/saved layout after the grid layout is temporarily adjusted for a specific task.
Restore Default Grid Layout - return to the layout that AWdb used when first installed.

Other Menu Items

Custom Filter Dialog... opens the Filter Builder dialog to create, modify, save or open customized filters.
Export... starts the process of exporting a grid's data to an external file.

Grid Display

These options affect how the grid is displayed:

Show Group By Box - show/hide the grouping area displayed above the grid.
Use Alternate Grouping Style - alternate between two styles available for displaying grids with groupings.
Use Alternate Color Scheme for Rows - use a different color scheme for alternating rows in the grid


Use Alternate Grouping Style and Use Alternate Color Scheme for Rows options are only available when viewing AWdb in the "Native" Style.
