Dimension Viewer

Hide/Show Dimension Viewer button

  • The dimension viewer shows a full tree view of the dimensions and measures in a cube. This view helps you understand the data structure and find the items you require. In the dimension viewer, you see an organized view of all dimensions, levels, and categories in a selected cube in a Windows folder-like presentation. You can right-click the categories or use the dimension view toolbar to perform actions on the data.
  • In the dimension viewer, the following actions can be accomplished using right-clicking:
  • Change a row or column
  • Change a measure or add new measures to your report
  • Create a nested crosstab or chart
  • Filter – which is to change a measure
  • By selecting a dimension or category below it and then selecting one of the toolbar icons you can insert before/after or replace rows & columns.

Expand - Expands the category to show the next level of data.

Delete - Deletes the level of data shown.

Calculation

  • Crosstab – Toggles the display between normal crosstab view and indented crosstab view which indents levels of nested categories for easier category relationship identification.
  • Chart – Allows you convert the display to various chart types (Bar, Pie, Line, 3D, etc).
  • Options – Allows you to set the display, add a report title, split view chart/crosstab, get data later, and reset the report to original settings.
  • Swap – Allows you to exchange the positions of categories in rows and columns for improved view.
  • Hide/Show – Allows you to selectively show or hide any category in a report. When categories are hidden the report summaries are not affected. The selected column category becomes the parent of the nested level.
  • Calculation – Allows you to perform custom calculations (+, -, x, /, %, etc.) on rows or columns to obtain a new item.
  • Rank – Allows you to add rank categories to reports to show rank ordinals (i.e. which company had the highest turnover).
  • Zero Suppression – Allows you to remove rows or columns containing zeros on rows, on columns or both.
      • To apply zero suppression to rows and columns, click Zero Suppression
      • To apply zero suppression to rows only, click Rows only.
      • To apply zero suppression to columns only, click Columns only.
  • 80/20 Suppression – Allows you to remove rows or columns whose absolute values do not contribute to the top 80% of the results.
  • Custom Exception Highlighting – Allows you to automatically apply custom formatting to data that meets exception conditions.
  • Custom Subsets – Allows you to create a group of categories contained in a dimension that appear in a separate, customized category defined by user’s criteria.
  • File – Allows you to export the report as PDF, CSV or XLS. You can also prepare a bookmark, the first step in saving the report as a bookmark.
  • Help – Allows you to access the Cognos help window where you can get subject specific help for the novice to experienced user.
