Screen Overview

For the “canned” Queries, this screen appears after entering selection criteria on the Choose Records screen.

This screen shows the entire report, including column headings and formatting, totals and sub-totals, and all the individual data records. Use Page Up and Page Down keys (or click the blue arrows) to move up and down. Click the Move Left and Move Right buttons to scroll to the right or left to see additional columns.

CU*TIP: For a wide report, try using the Split feature (F21) to split the screen vertically. Any text to the left of the split line will stay stationary when shifting the screen to the right. First, click the mouse on the report at the point where you want the split to be. (You must click in the white area where the records show, not in the blue header area.) Then use Split (F21) to split the screen vertically at that point. (Use Split again to remove the split.)
