RE: Tip of the Week - Grid Search Logic
CPS Customer Service is pleased to announce it will begin sending a weekly "Tip of the
Week" network message highlighting a specific feature or process in the EDExpress
This week's Tip: Using the grid search logic
Feature/Process: In the 1998-99 EDExpress software a new grid search logic has been
added to improve sorting and search capabilities. This feature will be enabled wherever
a browsable grid is displayed. To use the sort or search feature, use the mouse and
right-click on any column title bar (representing the column in which to search or sort) in
the browsable grid. You have four options to choose from: Find, Quick Sort Ascending,
Quick Sort Descending, and Freeze Column.
Why you should use it: The grid logic can be helpful in a variety of ways. For example,
the 'Find' feature can help you find the field name you're looking for when creating
queries and clicking on 'Value Help' to view valid field content. 'Quick Sort Ascending'
and 'Quick Sort Descending' can be used to quickly change the sort order in 'Choose
Selected Records' from SSN to Alpha order. When scrolling through a browsable list
with many columns, use 'Freeze Column' to keep the student's name in view.
If you have any questions, please contact CPS Customer Service at 1-800-330-5947 or via
