FAQ 348: Grid--copying from one column to another in the grid


Using the Employee Grid, is there an easy and quick way to copy the values in one column to another column? For example, if I want to copy the deferrals in the Prior Deferrals field to the Value field, can I just highlight the Prior Deferrals field and copy/paste to the Value field? I couldn't find any copy/paste option.


Open up the grid with both values in it. Select View-Grid-Set Column Data. Select the field that you are copying *to* under the update section. Under "From", select "Data File" and then click on the magnifying glass. This will bring up the employee record screens and fields - select the field that you are copying *from* here. Click "OK" and "Yes" and the field will be copied over.
