Subtotal on top in VI 10

Hello there,

Today let’s talk about a quick tip: “How to move the grid subtotal to top in Visual Insight 10”.

In version 9.x we couldn’t display the subtotal on top but in version 10 it is quite simple.

To change the subtotal position you just have to:

  1. Click on the header of a column and select Subtotal. Choose the proper subtotal that fits your needs;
  2. Scroll the grid all the way down until you see the total and then right click on it and select “Move to top”;




I hope it helps.

God bless you!
