[Zope-DB] Giving the user the option to view certain fields in a query

Yeah, I think you are right. I think what I am going to do is make the
Title of one of my fields such as 'UserName' in the results page
clickable. When the user clicks it, it will pass values into a query
that will spit out the results of only the username.

Thanks for your response.

I'd be inclined to treat this as a formatting issue in your ZPT (Make 
certain columns display conditionally upon a form value?) - doing this 
in the SQL is messy!

However, it does sound as though you're looking for something closer to 
a general purpose report generator...a lot of work to write!
