If you want to group information in the list for a more synthetic view, click on the "Group by..." list box and select a column name to group together all values in that column that are equal. The most useful column for grouping is the "Description" column, which contains error and warning messages output by the validation process.
Validation messages are then grouped under a title, and it is possible to hide or show the details for each title by clicking on the title.
It is also possible to export the validation report as a CSV (comma-separated values) file, suitable for import in a spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel, Google Sheet and LibreOffice Calc, for example.
If the dataset is fully valid, that is there are no error and no warning messages, the validation report is presented as shown here. You can then download a validation certificate in the form of a PDF file.
