Adding or removing objects from reports without re-executing against the warehouse

When designing a report, the report designer chooses which objects to display in the report. The report designer can also include additional objects that are available for the report, in the Report Objects pane. The Report Objects pane acts like a storage area for objects that you can add to the report when you need to.

You can add or remove objects from a report using the Report Objects pane, and the report automatically recalculates the results based on the objects on the report, without re-executing it against the data warehouse.

Prerequisite

You must own the MicroStrategy OLAP Services product to use the Report Objects pane.

To add or remove objects from reports without re-executing the report against the warehouse

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

  2. If the Report Objects pane is not visible on the left in the Report Viewer, from the View menu choose Report Objects.

  3. To add objects to the report, select the desired object in the Report Objects pane and drag it to the desired location on the report. Before you release the mouse button, a horizontal line indicates that the object will be added as a row. A vertical line indicates that the object will be added as a column.

  4. To remove objects from the report, select the object on the report that you want to remove and drag it to the Report Objects pane.

The report automatically recalculates the results based on the objects contained on the report.
