Click the search field arrow and select the attributes to include in the search.

The table is updated based on your search criteria. For example, if you are reviewing reports for datastores in a datacenter, you can display information for only those datastores that have NFS format by selecting the File System Type attribute and entering NFS as a key word. Filtering is persistent for the user session.
