Expand Data, Expand Detail Data

For crosstabs in a page report, if they contain more than one column/row group level, you can specify whether or not to enable expanding and collapsing the column/row groups at runtime, and set the default expanding/collapsing state of groups in the outer level. This behavior is controlled by two properties: Expand Data and Expand Detail Data.

  • Expand Data: A property on crosstab, and DBFields and formulas added into crosstab as column/row fields. This property on crosstab controls whether or not to enable end users to expand and collapse the column/row groups in the crosstab. When the property on a crosstab is enabled, you can use the property on DBFields and formulas in the crosstab to specify whether the corresponding column/row groups can be expanded and collapsed respectively.
  • Expand Detail Data: A property on DBFields and formulas added into crosstab as column/row fields. It specifies whether or not to expand the details of specific column/row groups in a crosstab by default.

Note: These two properties work only in continuous page mode and do not apply on the innermost column/row group. After setting the two properties, if you further modify the crosstab layout, they may not take effect.

Suppose you have a crosstab which shows Product Type Name and Category as the column groups, Region, Country and State as the row groups, and displays summaries for Quantity.

  1. In the Report Inspector, set the Expand Data property of the crosstab to true.
  2. Set the Expand Data property of the DBField Country to false, and the Expand Detail Data property of the DBField Product Type Name to false.
  3. Unselect Page Layout on the View menu tab to switch to continuous page mode.
  4. When the report containing the crosstab is published to Logi Report Server and runs in Page Report Studio, you can select the buttons with a plus or minus sign to expand and collapse the details of the Region and Product Type Name groups. Since Expand Data of Country is false, the details of this group cannot be expanded; Expand Detail Data of Product Type Name is false so the details of this group are not expanded by default.
