You can organize data in a block using a section.
A section displays the grouped value and appears as a header outside the block, instead of remaining within the block. More importantly, a break merely groups data within a block, whereas a section groups the entire report. When you have multiple tables and charts in a single report, the sections group the data for all tables and charts according to the section value.
The advantages of sections are as follows:
- You can project multiple blocks from the same micro cube within a single report, all sub-grouped to the sectioned level.
- You can insert subtotal cells, repeated in each section, which are created by the simple process of drag-and-drop.
