View - Columns

Show or hide columns in tables and specify their order. The View - Columns dialog shows all fields available in the table, with a readout at the bottom of the dialog that shows how many columns are currently shown out of the total number or columns in the table. The dialog also shows the data type of each column's field.

 

For tables linked to drawings, the View - Columns dialog will also list all intrinsic fields available. Intrinsic fields are system-generated fields that report information, such as latitude and longitude location, for each object.

 

Check the column box to show that column. Click on a column to highlight it and then the Move buttons to move it up or down in order.
