Data Grids

With a data grid you can:

 

Resize columns
Enable and Disable columns
Export data to Excel
Save data as a CSV file
Email the data as an image
Print data
Search data

 

 

Right Click Menu

Right mouse clicking within any data grid will bring up a menu with several grid actions. You may want to export your execution history to Excel for further analysis as an example. Simply go to any grid displaying execution history, right mouse click and select the Export... menu item. Here you can choose the file type and file name to export, select either "CSV" or "Excel".
