Grouping records

Grouping records is another way to organize records in a grid. Grouping allows you to collect records with the same value in a certain column and display them as separate groups of records.

An example of a grouped grid is shown in the picture below.

You can use the following capabilities for grouping grid records:

  • You can use the Group Panel that is a powerful and flexible tool for grouping grid records. For details, see Showing and hiding the Group Panel.

  • You can group records by one or several columns by using either the commands of pop-up menu or the Group Panel or the Grouping tab of the Customize View window. For details, see Grouping.

  • You can configure the view so that records appear grouped automatically whenever you sort them. For details, see Grouping by sorting.

  • You can configure the view to automatically hide the columns by which records are grouped. For details, see Hiding columns by which the records are grouped.

  • You can configure the view to use Microsoft Outlook style when grouping by a date/time column. For details, see Grouping date columns in Outlook style.

  • You can remove either grouping by a single column or all grouping from the grid. For details, see Ungrouping.
