The grid (implemented in TruboCASH5) is very powerful because of its sophisticated easy to use filter and sort features does this quicker than any other way. It has the ability to group, sort and filter any data column(s) on most screens in a Set of Books with only a view mouse clicks.

If you need to view or find specific data, there are carious option available to locate and find your data. Some of the options are:

Sort - Click on a column heading to sort and list the data ascending or descending sequence. All the data is by default displayed ascending; from the smallest to the highest value (e.g. a-z or 0-9) according to the record number (e.g. line number in a journal, etc.) To change the sort order from ascending (e.g. a-z or 0-9) to descending (e.g. z-a or 9-0) select a column and click on it. If you click on it again it will change back to ascending sequence.

Drag and Drop Columns - You may click on a column and drag it to the left or to the right to change the sequence your data is displayed on screens.

Filter - Click in the arrow to list the data in a specific column. A list displaying the data, as well as an All option and a Custom... option in the selected column will be displayed. For example, if amounts are entered in a journal entry screen, all the amounts will be listed. By adding a tick next to a specific amount, only transactions, matching that amount will be listed.
