Report modifications can be completed in multiple ways with Microstrategy:
With Microstrategy Version 9, there is a new look and functionality for reports, including five tabs at the top of the report screen:
Each tab has icons in the toolbar (or ribbon). Several icons repeat for each tab, while most are unique to each tab.
The Home, Tools, Data and Format tabs also have drop-down menus that give the same options as the icons. The Grid tab only provides icons on the toolbar.
In addition to using the icons in the toolbar, users can complete some functions by dragging objects. For example, the Page-By function, which filters report display, can be completed by dragging an object to the Page-By ribbon. Below is an example of dragging the Activity Title column to the Page-By ribbon so that all results are filtered by the Activity Title selected.
Finally, report modifications can be completed by right clicking objects. Right clicking will open a menu of modifications available. Below is an example of a right-click over the Activity Type column. Modifications available include sorting, moving the column and filtering data.
Users should explore these functions in the Microstrategy reports module to gain familiarity with how to modify reports and what modification are most useful. In addition, more information is available in DRGR Fact Sheet Microstrategy Reports Engine Upgrade, Release 7.9.
