Database columns represent a field in a database record.
A grid can either be a browse grid or an update grid.
You can use a browse grid for viewing only, and you cannot select individual cells.
The way the grid column value is stored is based on the type of the associated dictionary item (for example, math numeric, string, character), and it is distinct from the screen representation of the value.
Only one row of data can be acted upon at any given time.
This section discusses how to: You can display grid cell data as icons to provide quicker, more meaningful visual feedback on certain types of data, such as status flags or other data where the internal value of a flag is not directly meaningful to a user.
The ability to display grid data as icons enables you to associate values or ranges of values with an icon image, and then display that image in a grid, instead of the underlying data value.
Icons are therefore represented physically by a group of related graphic images, each of which corresponds to one of the different icon states.
The naming convention enables these graphic images to be an interrelated set grouped under a single icon.
Only database columns enable entry in the QBE columns because the purpose of the QBE is to affect the selection and only database columns are in the BV.
A QBE column can have one of these comparison types: The comparison type is equal unless you specify otherwise.
Grid values can be retrieved on a cell-by-cell basis or on a row-by-row basis.
