Changing an object's name on a report

An alias allows you to display an object on a report using a different name, without changing its title in the project. You can alias any of the following objects:

  • Attributes

  • Metrics

  • Consolidations

  • Custom groups

To set an alias for a report object

  1. Run a report. (For steps to run a report, see Running a report.)

  2. From the Data menu, choose Report Data Options. The Report Data Options dialog box opens.

  3. Under Categories, expand Display, and then select Alias. Display - Alias appears on the right side of the editor.

  4. Click in the Alias column of the object. Enter the alias name in the text box.

  5. Click OK.
