Glad to hear the function is useful to you.  Now if you'll excuse me I have to go wipe the blood out of my eyes. :)

Why? Does it look that horrible to you?
It's not a bit glary or 'orrible on my laptop display - honest. (Unlike your rather good "ugly" example above.)

You were funny - you made me laugh anyway.
Yes, it is a bit bright. I am still playing about with it.

Note: if you click the tiny button on the far left of the grid column header you can toggle off some of those useless columns.  that should make the grid nicer to look at.

But they're not "useless columns"!
They tell me more about my database and its structure.
Actually, I was rather pleased that you had left them there for users to enable, if they wanted them.       :)
In my "Standard Layout" view I have them all turned on for max info.

I think I shall be making a separate request for you to enable some of those Column Names for users to perform SQL searches on, in the Virtual Folders.
For example, ClipFormat would seem to be the best identifier of whether a Clip is an image (value=1) or text (value=0). I currently don't see any way to get that distinction otherwise, anyway.

you can already use all of them in virtual folder sql.. i just have to post the list of the real field names (as opposed to column labels).

@mouser: Ah! YES PLEASE!
That would be great if you could do that.
Thanks.

Wouldn't it be nice if they were available as variables, %Title%, %Notes%, etc., for use in templates for pasting  :)
