Logbook Pro offers a unique and simple way to view all of your data within one area, the Logbook Pro Explorer. Modeled after the Windows Explorer interface, the Explorer is used by simply clicking the nodes (text information) on the left side, then view the information on the right side. Display options are available by clicking the Options icon (far left) of the Sub Toolbar such as grid line styles and row shading.
When viewing data, such as logbook data, click a row on the right and the row will become highlighted for easy viewing. Column widths are adjustable just as in the data entry areas by clicking and dragging the row divider to the right of the column desired. The logbook area will configure itself to match that of the Spreadsheet Style log to make the interface simpler to read between data areas. Data cannot be edited in the Explorer, it is only a place for viewing existing data (read-only).
The Explorer offers a powerful capability for analyzing data as well. Figure 1 below shows the summary capability in the logbook area, providing a grand total overall as well as grand total summaries by aircraft type. At the bottom of each node of logbook data is a summary line, showing the totals for each column if the user actually wants to view the data with a summary below.

Currencies can be closely analyzed by viewing the data and determining fail points by clicking the plus symbols to branch down each currency configuration as shown in Figure 2. Color coding applied for easy viewing.

All areas except the currency area benefit from the ability to print and export, should you want to capture the data or transport it to another analytical system such as Microsoft Excel. Enjoy the Logbook Pro Explorer, it is a very powerful system for viewing your data.
