Analyzing Data

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Analyze data
  • Refresh/reset the data source

Drag and Drop

You are not restricted to using the Analysis tab to manipulate your crosstab. You can drag and drop directly within the crosstab to rearrange columns and rows.

Attributes

Attributes are always associated with a particular dimension and are used to provide more information or detail about that particular dimension. For example, your data source may have a Customer dimension with attributes for Phone Number and Email Address. While you may not use the attribute information for primary analysis, it is often helpful to display in the crosstab.

If a dimension has attributes associated with it, you will see Attributes when you expand the dimension in the Data Source area of the Design Panel's Analysis tab. Expand Attributes and drag the appropriate field(s) to wherever the dimension is in the crosstab (Rows/Columns.)

Note
You cannot display Attributes without the associated dimension; the dimension must be present in the crosstab.
