The Status Area, along the top side of the YuleLog window, contains controls and information for working with your database. The Status Area displays different controls and information depending on which mode you’re using.

In all modes, the status area contains forward/backward arrows and layout pop-up menu.

Depending on what mode you’re in, use the book in the following ways:

  • To move back one record, find request,, or page, click the right arrow or press Ctrl+Up Arrow

  • To move forward one record, find request, or page, click the left arrow, or press Ctrl+Down Arrow

  • Move quickly between records, find requests, or pages, drag the bookmark up or down

  • Move quickly between records, find requests, or pages, drag the bookmark up or down

  • Go to a specific record, find request, or page, click the number to the right of the arrows or press Esc, type a number, and then press Enter.

The Status Area in Browse Mode

Use the Status Area in Browse mode to:

  • Move from record to record with the arrows

  • See the number of records in the database and, if you’ve performed a find operation, the found set

  • Determine whether the records are sorted

Status Area in Find Mode

In Find mode, use the status area along with menu commands to create and manage find requests.

Use the arrows to move between find requests you’ve define.

Use the Omit checkbox to omit records matching this find request’s definition from the found set. Use the Operators pop-up menu to choose mathematical or logical operators to define search criteria for a field.

Don’t Use the Find button in the Status Area , use the one below the find criteria that is labeled Perform Find.

YuleLog creates a found set of the records matching the criteria in the find requests and displays those records in the List View. If you use the Find Button in the Status Area, you will find records from every collection and will not be taken to the proper display screen.

Note: If you’ve performed a find operation, you see only the records in the found set when browsing, previewing, and printing. To work with all the records, click on the List All button .

Status Area in Preview Mode

You may need to go to the end of the report (using the slider) before the total number of pages is accurately next to the arrows. The horizontal scroll bar does not move you through the pages of the layout; you can use it to scroll up and down on the current page only. Use the arrows to move between pages.

Note: If you’ve performed a find operation, you see only the records in the found set when browsing, previewing, and printing. To work with all the records, click on the List All button.
