Exploring Reports in the Enhanced Interface

<<  2 of 24  >>

When you explore reports in the Enhanced interface, there are a number of ways you can view information and perform actions on the data.  For example, you can drag and drop and right-click throughout the Enhanced interface.

There are 5 major areas that make up the Enhanced interface:

Dimension Viewer
Dimension Viewer

The dimension viewer shows a full tree view of the dimensions and measures in a cube.  This view helps you understand the data structure and find the items you require.  In the dimension viewer, you see an organized view of all dimensions, levels, and categories in a selected cube in a Windows folder-like presentation.  You can drag items from the dimension viewer to add categories to rows and columns, perform filtering, and reorganize the dimension line on either a crosstab or a chart.  You can also right-click the categories to perform actions on the data.

In the dimension viewer, the following actions can be accomplished using drag and drop or right-clicking:

  • change a row or column
  • change a measure
  • create a nested crosstab or chart
  • filter

If you prefer to use the full browser window for the display, you can close the dimension viewer by clicking the Hide/Show Dimension Viewer button. Hide/Show Dimension Viewer button
