Dynamic Filtering Using Element Links

Element links are another kind of input control, also displayed in the filter bar. You can define tables and charts as input controls using element links. When you create an element link between a parent and child elements, you can select values in the parent table or chart to filter the child report elements.

For example, you can display corporate data as a pie chart. To make the document even more powerful, you can link each slice of the pie chart to detail report data in a table.

Each time you select a pie chart slice, the table is dynamically filtered.
