Table Visualization Settings

A table can be used to display a small dataset where all the values are visible or the aggregate values of a larger data set.

The table can be configured to show hierarchies, allowing sub totals and grand totals to be displayed. Additionally, branches of the hierarchy can be expanded and collapsed.

The table can be sorted by clicking on a column heading, and sorting is applied across the defined hierarchy.

Columns widths can be adjusted manually or automatically, and columns can be hidden when required.

Columns cells can be represented in their value form or, alternatively, graphically as a series of micro-charts including:

q  Bullet Graph

q  Bar Graph

q  Dot Plot

The table settings pane is displayed after clicking the Options  button.




Show Sub Totals

Determines whether Sub Total aggregate rows are shown in the table.

Show Grand Total

Show Totals Above

Determines whether the Grand Total or Sub Totals are displayed above the rows in the table.

Virtual Mode

Determines whether the table will be in a virtual or flat mode in the Web client. If so, the collapse and expand options will not be available.
