Grid window overview

The Grid window accommodates a variety of different reports. Each report can display data from one primary and, optionaly, one secondary table. For example, a Task/Assignment report features data from the Task table and from the Assignment table which links tasks with resources.

Records are added to tables by inserting rows into reports. Data in the tables is edited by editing columns in reports. The same information can be displayed on several reports. Changes in one are automatically displayed in the others.
