A retrieval is an extremely handy application. It displays any amount of data pulled in real-time from your database. It lets you sort and search by any column, filter your results, drill down to more data, and more. Basically, if you ever want to look up any data in your database instantly via a web browser, you want a retrieval.
Now, the example above displays customer details in a vertical table. But, what if you want to display your records horizontally? Enter the new “Horizontal Retrieval,” another free template found in the m-Power Project Exchange. As the name implies, it lets you create retrievals that display records horizontally rather than vertically.
Keep in mind that the demo provides a very basic example of vertical records. Each of the boxes can be formatted and prettied up to your hearts content. Additionally, you could also turn each of those boxes into smartlinks, which would drill down to more information when selected.
In short, the horizontal retrieval gives you another option for presenting your data, and who doesn’t like options? This project is free to m-Power users and can be downloaded in the Project Exchange.
