Common ways of organizing data in Project include sorting, grouping, and filtering. In all cases Project never deletes the data; it just changes how it is displayed.
Project includes many built-in sort orders, groupings, and filters, and you can create your own.
Whereas sorting and filtering rearrange or selectively show only some data in a project plan, grouping adds summary values or “roll-ups” of values such as costs, based on whatever interval you choose.
Tables are the primary elements of most views in Project. Project includes several built-in tables, and you can create your own.
You work with data in Project via views. Views may contain tables, groups, filters, and in some cases graphical charts. The Gantt Chart view, for example, consists of a table on the left and a timescaled chart on the right.
