Customise Table Option

Showing Codes Instead of Names

All datasets, dimensions and dimension members in the data warehouse have short codes as well as names. The codes can be displayed instead of names, by using the option Use Codes instead of full descriptions. Many other options are available such as setting decimals, removing empty rows, fitting pages, charting and others.

To use codes instead of names, select the Table Options icon found in the Customise drop down. Under the Use codes option, select the dimensions you want displayed with codes by clicking on the boxes, and then deselect Use full descriptions. When finished making your selection, click View data.
