Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with view settings, part of Creating Access Web Apps in SharePoint 2013.
- Let's take a deeper dive into the editing process…for our view, because with our tables in place,…what we really wanna focus on now…is our user interface, which is almost all views…and no small icons for tables.…And then we'll take a look at some actions…or macros that we can add on to round out…the complement of features that are available…here in our web app.…So I'm gonna click Edit to go into the List view of Issues.…Now, you might notice the entire view is selected.…
We have some buttons in the upper right…I'm going to talk about in a moment,…and Summary over on the left-hand side.…First, we have a Data button.…And all we'll learn here is what table…this view is bound to.…Could I change tables?…Sure.…Would I want to?…Not normally, however, occasionally…you might have a reason to do this.…You might be building your web app…with one set of tables that are empty,…and then have tables that are filled…that you'd like to bring in, and you simply wanna swap them.…
But normally, we won't make a change here.…The second item is Formatting for the entire view.…

Q: The "Using the If macro action" movie seems to end in the middle of troubleshooting. What am I missing?
<div>A: You’re right—and a replacement movie is on the way. In the meantime, here is the solution:</div><div> </div><div>The IssuesNext30Days data macro sets a local variable, originally named ApplyFilter, equal to RecordFound. During troubleshooting we change the name of the ApplyFilter variable to TurnOnFilter but the name doesn’t matter. Our problem is that ApplyFilter is a local variable, so it only has value in the IssuesNext30Days macro. We can’t use this variable in the IF condition of our web macro. </div><div> </div><div> We do, however, have a value that we can use: the value of RecordFound. To complete debugging on this macro, change the condition in the web macro to: </div><div> </div><div>If [RecordFound] =”Yes” Then</div><div> </div>
