Update Settings

The Grid Update Settings page only appears if the grid is editable (updateable).

The Search Part

The Search form allows you to find records using complete or partial values in one or more fields. The result of a search displays only the matching records in your grid. You can sort the results on any field in the grid.

The Detail View

The Detail View form provides a single record view that allows you to read, edit, delete, and insert records. The display format will show any selection of fields, even if they are not in the grid.
