Double-click the cell or selectto display the PeopleSoft nVision Layout Definition dialog box.

The type of criteria you define determine the tabs on the PeopleSoft nVision Layout Definition dialog box you use. Add worksheet-level criteria first. This always is cell A1.
To add row criteria, place your cursor on column A, rows 2 through xxx.
To add column criteria, place your cursor on row 1, columns B through xxx.
To add cell criteria, place your cursor anywhere within the spreadsheet that you want the result to appear.
Note: As you create a matrix layout, occasionally run a report request based on the layout to ensure that the layout will work as you expect.
