Customizing your view

To change the sort criteria:

Note: An arrow in the column heading identifies the sort criteria and order, ascending or descending, being used to display information.

  1. Click the column heading to be used for the sort criteria.
  2. The sort order is in ascending order. To change it to descending order, click the heading a second time.
  3. To specify a secondary sort order, press the SHIFT key and then click the heading of the column to be used for the secondary sort order.

  2. Click and hold the left mouse button dragging the column boundary to the desired size.

To change the order of the columns

  1. Use the left mouse button to click the heading to be moved (the column heading pops off the grid).

  2. Select the column and drag it to the desired location in the column header.

    Note: You can also right-click an individual column header and select Group By This Column. Selecting this command moves the selected header to the Group by box above the header row.

    You can select to group by additional headings to create a hierarchy of groupings.
