Understanding Grid Formats

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne grid formats are personalized grid layouts that you create to customize how your grid data is displayed. You can display the data either in Table View or List View grid formats. Using the intuitive Grid Format Manager interface, you can select the columns you want to include in your grid formats.

You use Grid Format Manager to create, modify, and save grid formats. When you click the Personalize Grid icon, the system displays the Grid Format Manager side panel.

You can choose to display records in either of the following two grid formats:

  • Table View - Collects the data records from the query and organizes them in a tabular grid. See Working with the Table View Grid Format for more information.

  • List View - Groups data records and displays them in a vertical scrollable list. See Working with the List View Grid Format (Release for more information. The List View grid format is available only for find/browse grids. (Release

    The option to select either the List View grid format or Table View grid format is available only in find/browse grid.

  • The ability to customize the grid in modal forms is enabled from Tools Release
