It's a feature-rich screen that provides real-time data for every analysis set and selection list. It's also the starting point for many data actions, from setting specifications to performing statistical analyses.
This article shows you how to open a results overview screen, create filters, and manage results data. We also show you how to generate reports and access other data management features.

Sorting and filtering
To sort overview data, click a column header (1) and then select the desired sort direction (2). In the example below, we look at pH values in descending order.
To narrow the results on display:
- Click a column header to open the filter window.
- Set a filter.
- Click Apply in the filter window.
- Repeat steps 1-3 to filter other column data.
- Click the Apply button in the toolbar.
Steps 4 and 5 allow you to set filter conditions for multiple columns. While they are optional, adding extra filters enables you to save time and makes your results overview very specific.
The rationale for the two "Apply " buttons is that you can set filter conditions for multiple columns.
