Table

Table Sinks The table sink shows values in a table. The table can display both numerical and string values. The values contained in the source's data are displayed in multiple columns. Columns can be hidden or shown via the popup menu that can be accessed by right-clicking the column header. The rows in the table can be sorted by the values in a certain column, by clicking on the column header. Data in the table can be saved to various common file formats.
