In EQuIS Professional, the data grid offers several options for viewing and exporting data in EQuIS tables or grid reports.







Enable filtering in columns. Click the Filter button Filter-Standard(1) in a column to select specific values.

Column Chooser

Choose columns to hide or unhide.


Select a font size using the drop-down menu to temporarily change the grid display.
