Modify Data View properties

When you create a Data View in Microsoft Expression Web, you can modify the Data View properties so that the Data View appears in the browser the way that you want it to.

Before you can modify the Data View properties, you need to add a Data View to the page. For more information, see Add a Data view.

To add a header, a column summary row, a footer, or custom text to a Data View

  1. In Design view, right-click Data View, and then click Show Common Control Tasks. In the Common Data View Tasks list, click Data View Properties.
