Drill Down and Drill Up

<<  6 of 24  >>

You can drill down and drill up to explore different aspects of the federal workforce and move between levels of information.  After you familiarize yourself with the dimensions hierarchies, you can drill down and drill up multiple levels at a time.

Steps to Drill Down
  1. To drill down a level within one category in the FedScope display, click the column heading link.
    The next level categories replace the column headings in the display.
Tips
  • To drill down using the dimension viewer, choose one of the following options:
    1. Right-click the next level category in the dimension viewer, and then click either Replace Rows or Replace Columns.
    2. In the dimension viewer, expand the dimension to locate the next level category in the dimension, click the next level category, and then drag it to the column heading area or the row heading area.
  • To choose a category level from the dimension line, click the dimension, and then click the lower-level category you want to show in the display.
  • To drill down a level across all categories in the FedScope display, right-click the column or row level selector area, and then click Down a Level.
    Note: The column level selector area is located to the immediate right of the first column heading area. The row level selector area is located immediately above the first row heading area.
Steps to Drill Down Multiple Levels
  1. In the dimension viewer, expand the dimensions to locate the category level you want to show in the display.
  2. Click the category level, and then drag it to the column heading area or the row heading area.
Tips
  • You can also right-click the category level in the dimension viewer, and then click either Replace Rows or Replace Columns.
  • To drill down multiple levels from the dimension line, click the dimension, and then pause the pointer on the next category level to expose the next level of categories.  Continue to expose the lower-level categories, and then click the category level you want to show in the display.
  • To drill down multiple levels in the FedScope display, click the column heading links until you reach the category level you want to show in the display.
  • In crosstab displays, you can double-click a data value to drill down directly to the categories associated with the value.
