TAILOR primary command

The TAILOR command provides a list of columns and their attributes for the current selection list. You can change the attributes in order to customize or limit the display. Changeable attributes include:

The column attributes you can change are:
A numerical value specifying the relative order (left to right) in which the column is displayed.

If you specify a value of 0 for Order, the column is suppressed from being displayed.

Specifies how the data in the column is to be sorted:
Sort data in ascending order.
Sort data in descending order.
Do not sort the data.
Specifies if the column is to be made non-scrollable:
The width of the column.
Restricts the data displayed in a selection list to data that matches the specified filter string.

You can specify wildcard characters in the filter.

Filtering is performed using a generic trailing match. That is, if the start of the data in the column being filtered matches the filter string, it is considered a match. For example, a filter of PEA matches PEA and PEAR, but not APPEAR.

Matching of data to filters is not case-sensitive. For example, a filter of PEA matches PEA, PEAR, Pea and pear.

You can specify any of these operators as the first character of the filter:
Greater than.
Less than.
Equal to.
Not equal to.

When a column contains a filter parameter, the title is shown in yellow.

Note: You cannot use the TAILOR primary command with the selection list displayed for the TAILOR operation.
