You can filter the report data to limit the displayed results.
For example, you can limit the displayed results to information for a specific customer or a sales period. The data you filter out remains in the document; it's simply not displayed in the report tables or charts. This means you can change or remove report filters in order to view the hidden values, without modifying the query behind the document.
You can apply different filters to different parts of a report. For example, you can limit the results in the entire report to a specific product line and then limit results in a table or chart further to focus on results for a specific region or customer profile.
To create a filter, you need to specify the following elements:
- A filtered object
- An operator
- Filter values
- The report element to be filtered (the whole report, sections, or blocks).
