The Button Bar
At the top of all CatBase data table list views there is a row of buttons that can be used for
querying, reporting, sorting, and various other useful functions:
Search the selected table.
Make global changes to a field in your database.
Create columnar reports to print or export to a tab-delimited text file.
Print labels customised with data from the selected table.
Find all the records in the selected table and display them.
Only display the records that have been selected (highlighted).
Omit the selected record(s) from the list.
Duplicate the selected record(s). You can make up to 99 duplicates of each record.
Sort the selected records. You can sort on multiple fields, even if they are not displayed in columns on the list. Sorts can be saved and re-used. To use a saved Sort, right-click on the list and choose from the Sort option on the popup menu.
Run a Script
We can create scripts to accomplish just about any special task you require. Click this button to run one. Contact us if you would like to discuss your scripting requirements.
Publish the selected or displayed records using a Publishing Stylesheet you have set up.
Create a new record for the selected table.
Delete the selected record(s), or mark them for deletion, depending on the preference you've set in Admin->Preferences->Data Entry.
