SuperSTAR 9 Documentation : Bulk Selection - SuperWEB2

If the data you are working with has a field that contains a large number of child values, then you may see the Bulk Selection button when you expand that field in the tree instead of the field values:

If you want to add all the values for this field to the table, then you can still drag and drop the field onto the table, or use the Select all at level drop-down list, just like any other field.

However, if you want to select a subset of the available values to add to your table (or remove from your table), then you need to use the bulk selection feature to select the ones you want from the tree.

  1. Click Bulk Selection. SuperWEB2 displays the Bulk Selection dialog:

  2. Use the text box at the top of the list to enter one or more filter strings and click Filter.

    The list of values displayed in the Bulk Selection dialog will update so that it only shows those that match one of your filter strings.

    You can enter multiple filter strings (separate each filter string with a space). For example, the following filters restrict the list of post codes to just those containing "2000", "3000", "4000", "405", "505" or "605".

    If there is still more than one page of results, you can click the pagination links at the bottom to switch between pages.

  3. When you are happy with your filter, click OK. SuperWEB2 selects all the values matched by the filter:

  4. You can now use the Add to Row or Add to Column buttons to add your selected values to the table.
