To apply grouping drag the column header to the gray area at the top.
If necessary, you can group data by two or more columns. In this case column headers are displayed hierarchically, and data are grouped by these columns in the order the column headers appear in the Group by area.
To reverse grouping drag the column header back.
The Group by area popup menu allows you to perform: Full Expand and Full Collapse.
It is possible to make quick filtering by a specific value, or by blank/non blank field criteria.
To activate quick filter press the button in the upper-right corner of the column header.
To apply manually defined conditions use the Custom item of the drop-down list.

Relation between these conditions is defined with And/ Or options.
