Traffic Lighting

The Traffic Lighting analysis tool color-codes data cells. You can base color-coding on two-member comparisons or single-member fixed limits. Colors graphically associate member values, whether or not they are sorted or ranked. Traffic Lighting definitions are created in the Traffic Lighting dialog box and maintained as the document is pivoted and changed.

The Information panel displays the Traffic Lighting definitions that color-code the current data object.
