On the Filter Navigation tab page you can specify characteristics or a control query so that the system precalculates several documents with different filter settings from the same query or Web application.
These filter values provide you with a navigation option in the precalculated document. You can select the filter values using dropdown boxes in the navigation block.
You can make the following settings:
· No Filtering:The system precalculates an unfiltered document.
· Filtering Using Selected Characteristics: The system precalculates several documents with various filter settings according to your chosen settings. Highlight the desired characteristic and specify the desired filter value using Create Filter Values. You can specify a maximum of two characteristics.
If you would like to precalculate a document that is not filtered according to this characteristic value in addition to the filtered document, choose Add Unfiltered View.
· Filtering Using Control Query: The system precalculates several documents with various filter settings. The filters correspond to the characteristic combinations of the control query that you specified. Specify the desired control query in the Control Query field either manually or using Selection.
The top five customers according to sales (see Conditions) are displayed in the control query. The system precalculates five documents so that you can navigate between the five different views in the precalculated file. If the control query contains a results row, the system also precalculates an unfiltered view where you can see the sales data for all customers.
