Getting Started with Tables

  • CODAP's tables display parent-level data on the left-hand side and child-level data on the right.
  • Change column widths by dragging the separators between titles in the column header.
  • Click on a column header to edit the name or formula of an attribute.
  • Click on parent or child data rows to highlight associated data within CODAP.
  • Collapse and expand child case (data) tables by clicking the plus (+) symbol next to the left-hand table rows.
  • Use the ruler menu item in the upper right to add new attributes, delete selected cases, and more.
  • Drag and drop an attribute (left screenshot) to the far left side (center) to create a new collection (right).
