Running a report allows you to view the report result set. For a grid report, the result is presented in a table of calculated values. When a report is run, you are also presented with a formatted display of all of the items (such as attributes and metrics) specified in the report's template that have satisfied any filtering conditions. For example, a report can show you a list of stores in a specific region, the price and volume of stock for a given period of time, or other important information.
Depending on your privileges in MicroStrategy, you can change the general presentation format and specific formatting details to suit your requirements and preferences.
