Reports can contain symmetric or asymmetric column groups. The symmetry the symmetry of column groups is determined automatically, based on the members you select.
Symmetric reports, as shown in Figure 26-15, are characterized by repeating, identical groups of members.
Figure 26-15 Symmetric Report
Asymmetric reports, as shown in Figure 26-16, are characterized by groups of nested members that differ by at least one member. There can be a difference in the number of members or in the names of members.
Figure 26-16 Asymmetric Report
You can create asymmetric reports as follows:
Enter member names in free-form mode.
Zoom in with Within Selected Group selected on the Member Options page of the Options dialog box.
Suppress rows that contain missing values, zero values, or underscore characters during data retrievals.
Retrieving data into an asymmetric report may take a long time on large reports.
