Add combinations of items to this summary folder by clicking "Add Combination" and checking desired items

You must choose the summary combinations that are to be pre-built and managed by the End User Layer. Each summary combination should reflect the type of analysis the user will want. The Summary Wizard displays one column for each possible summary combination of axis items and summary folders.


This column displays the axis items selected for this summary folder.


In each column, select the check box for each axis item in a summary combination to create a summary folder that reflects your requirements. Discoverer will build the results data for the summary folder when you finish using the wizard. The results data is available when a Discoverer end user runs a worksheet where the query matches a summary combination from this summary folder.
