Figure 9 : Using the Dimension Selector

To select or deselect an item, click the check box to the left of the item. In hierarchical dimensions, a plus (+) or minus (-) will appear next to parent-level items. Clicking on these symbols will allow you to show or hide the child items.

At the top and bottom of the screen there are a series of options.

To apply your modified selection of items for the current dimension and see a table of data corresponding to this new selection, click View Data.

For hierarchical dimensions, clicking on Expand all or Collapse all will show or hide all the child-level items of the dimension respectively. If all members of a hierarchical dimension are selected, the resulting table could contain empty rows or columns corresponding to the higher levels. If a dimension value is selected first and then another dimension value is to be selected, Select all will select all available values for the initial selection.
