Working with Browse Results
Browse features include the following:
The default sort order for the multiple columns in a browse can be set using Browse Maintenance. In Browse Maintenance, the value of the Sort Order field for each column specifies the order in which the columns are sorted relative to each other, and the Sort field specifies whether a column is sorted in ascending order, descending order, or unspecified order.
Use the navigation buttons in the top left to move through the records. The buttons from left to right move to the first set, previous set, next set, last set. See Navigating in Browses for details.
Use the Records per page drop-down to determine how many records display at one time in the browse. The default value can be set using the Rows Per Page setting in Tools|Options.
Use caution in displaying all records, especially when the number of records is large. Attempting to display a large number of records at once can adversely affect performance. Instead, use the Search conditions to focus on the specific records you want to review.
Drag columns by their headings to rearrange the display.
Note: As a shortcut, instead of clicking Edit, you can double-click on the row that includes the item.
Navigating in Browses
You can use the navigation buttons to move through browse records.
Alt+Up Arrow Key
First set of records
Alt+Left Arrow Key
Previous set of records
Alt+Right Arrow Key
Next set of records
Alt+Down Arrow Key
Last set of records
You can also use Tab and Shift+Tab to move through the buttons and fields in the browse toolbar. In this case, pressing Enter is the same as a right-mouse click. When you are in the browse search panel, press Enter to execute the search with the current conditions. After you have selected a row, you can use the up arrow or right arrow keys to move the row selection up one row; the down arrow and left arrow keys move the row selection down one row.
Note: You may notice slower performance during paging when a large number of records is displayed. Paging performance may worsen as you get to the bottom of the list. To reduce this problem, click a relevant column to reverse the sort and page through those records at the top of the list.
