Chapter 8. Working with Lists and Databases > Working with the Outline Feature

Working with the Outline Feature

The Outline feature provides you with an easy way to group records in a database and then collapse or expand that area of the database as needed. While grouping records is not really the same as filtering, it does allow you to fold up certain areas of a database so that you can concentrate on other areas.

For example, if you sort your employee database by department, you can then use the Outline feature to group the records that are in each department. This will then let you collapse the records for certain departments while you work with other records.
