Data Navigator

The Data Navigator in Datatific Review is a powerful and easy way to explore database tables and views. Its innovative data tree lets you dynamically examine data the way you want. You decide where to start and where to end. It is direct. It is fast. And it is easy.

You start with a table or view and then select a column of interest. The distinct values (and optionally counts) are displayed in the tree. Select a value and the data is displayed in the table panel. Continue selecting columns and values to get more specific data. This data navigation effectively builds a data filter with the structure Column1 = Value1 AND Column2 = Value2 AND so on. This process lets you examine the data as you navigate and filter it.  Very powerful!
