Move Column

In addition to inserting and hiding a column, you can move a column by changing its order in the grid relative to the other columns. In order to achieve this, click on the column name cell from the table header to select the entire column, hold down the column, drag it and release it in front of the column where you want to place it.

You will notice that when the entire column is selected, the mouse changes its icon when is hovered over the column name from the table header. The vertical dividing line that appears as bolded (look at the blue arrow in the below printscreen) indicates the position where will be placed the moved column.
