  1. Click 'browse' on the toolbar.
  2. Expand a table (by clicking on the '+' icon on the tree next to the table name).
  3. Expand the levels of the tree (by clicking on the '+' or '-' icons on the tree).
  4. Underlined record names indicate records which contain data.
  5. Click on a record name to display its datasheet in the main area.
