Browsing through the tab folders
You can browse through the contents of the Data and Glossaries tab folders using the following techniques:
*Use the vertical scrollbars — To scroll up and down the rows of information and view all the text phrases or glossary entries
*Use the horizontal scrollbars — To scroll right and left to view all the columns of information in the tab folder
*Choose a column label and type a letter — To automatically scroll down to the row of information to find the next occurrence of a phrase that begins with the letter you typed
Sorting rows and ordering columns
You can change the order of rows or columns in the tab folders with the Sort Rows and Order Columns options of the View menu. See online help for more information on these options.
