Chapter 10. Formatting and Creating View... > Adding and Removing Fields from View...

Adding and Removing Fields from Views

There are actually two ways to add fields to views with tables (the Network Diagram views do not have tables). The first way is to insert them into view directly in the view itself. This is done by right-clicking in the table portion of the view and inserting the field there. The second and less commonly used method is to edit the table that the view is using. Either way results in getting the fields you need to see into the views in which you need to see them.

Inserting a Field

Right-click on the field to the right of where you want the new field to appear. Select Insert Column from the menu.

From the Field Name drop-down menu, select the field you want to insert into your view.

If you want the field's name to appear differently from what shows in the Field Name drop-down menu, enter it in the Title field.

Select the alignment for the field title. You can select left, right, or center alignment.

Select the alignment for the data in the field.

Define how wide the field should be.

Clicking Best Fit will automatically insert the field with a width that depends on the longest data entry in the field.

Header Text Wrapping controls whether the column title will be wrapped if it exceeds the width of the field you have chosen.

Click OK to insert the field into the view.
