Copying data from views

You can copy data from an ACL view and paste it into another application. Copying data from a view is an alternative to exporting the data from ACL. Copying the data may be a faster and simpler option in some situations. For example, when the view is sorted using the Quick Sort Ascending or Quick Sort Descending menu command and you want to select a subset of the data.

To copy data from a view:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click and drag in the View tab to highlight the group of values you want to copy.

    • Click the column header of the column you want to copy and, if you want to copy multiple columns, Ctrl+click the other column headers to select them.

  2. Right-click in the data area of the view and select Copy. Do not click in the column header if you have selected multiple columns or highlighted a group of values, or only the column you right-click on will be selected.

    The data is copied to the clipboard. You can open the application you want to copy the data to, such as a spreadsheet or text file, and use the Paste command in that application to insert the data.
