Displaying Cumulants

In case the Data Set > Fact is not equal to Count, an Available Cumulants and Selected Cumulants control is available.

Select Cumulants
Figure: Select Cumulants

In the Display Cumulant(s) as drop-down list you can determine if the cumulant(s) should be displayed as rows or columns. This selection determines the orientation of your table data.

Note that in case the data set is grouped, these groups will appear on the opposite axis as the Display Cumulant(s) as selection. For example, if your data is grouped by Process Name, the process names in your data set will appear as the table columns when Display Cumulant(s) as is selected as Rows.

If the cumulation is displayed in columns, these attributes will display as sub-columns. Similarly, when the cumulation is displayed in rows they display as sub-rows.

Per default, available cumulants are:

You can re-order the attributes by using the up- and down arrows on the right side.

Displayed Cumulants Example

The following example demonstrates how to display cumulants for a fact other than Count. We select a numeric descriptor OrderCount as Fact and as dimension a descriptor ProducName.

Cumulants Example Data Set Settings
