Table: the default viewing mode of table data. Data in a table is stored in a cell that is an intersection of a vertical column and horizontal row.
Tree: viewing mode in which data is displayed in the key-value table with the possibility to expand the key cell if it contains children nodes. Data from the expanded children node is distributed between key and value columns. You might consider using this mode to work with JSON and array data.
Text: viewing mode in which data is displayed as a text.
Transpose a table, a view, or a virtual view
You can rotate the table data from rows to columns and from columns to rows. In the transposed view, the rows and columns are interchanged. You can combine the transpose action with other viewing modes.
