Changing Display Types

Documents display data values returned from data sources in data objects. Web Analysis documents can have multiple data objects, and each data object can have a different display type:

Each display type has numerous prerequisites. Because SQL spreadsheets and freeform grids can be created only in Web Analysis Studio, you cannot change them.

Pinboards require traffic lighting definitions, so you can change spreadsheets or charts to pinboards, only if the pinboard definition is defined.

  To change the display type of the current document, select Format , then Display Type then, select a display type or chart type.


Web Analysis Studio users can lock the display type to prevent subsequent users from altering a document.
