  • Selecting Drill down depth shading. When enabled, each drill-down level is highlighted with a different color shade.
  • Force column width sets the width of each indicator column. In case the total width of the columns exceeds the width of the screen, a scrollbar is displayed. If the table has too much space, data columns will be wider to take up the remaining space.
  • Force left header width allows the user to set the width of the whole drilll-down area when standard drill-down (not date or time) is used. When there are multiple drill-down attributes in the table, the width is applied to all of them together. In case the width of the columns exceeds the width set in the table appearance, a scrollbar is displayed.
  • Set sort indicator and its aggregation.
  • Format priority - If you are using table with formula in one axis and indicators on second axis, you can specify which of them will have priority with output format. Formatted row/column has priority over non formatted. If two formatted axis collide. This settings will set priority.
