Selecting Dimensions and their Variables
The items selected for each dimension, often referred to as dimension members, can be modified by clicking on and either an individual dimension, or the all dimensions option. A pop up window will open from which dimension members can be selected.
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.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
