      3. In the Column Configuration dialog, enter a name for the new column set
      4. Select inventory attributes from the list and add them to the Columns list by clicking Add to columns. Remember to select attributes that will help you identify the devices in the device list or returned by the query
      5. (Optional) You can customize how and where the columns appear in the network view by directly editing a component's heading, alias, and sort order fields; or by removing or moving the selected component up or down in the list with the available buttons
      6. (Optional) You can specify more precise qualifying data for software components. Select the software component, click the Qualify button, and then select a primary key value from the list of available values
