Source Data Fields

4. Source Data Fields
  •  Node*: the framework node where the data is located
  •  Element*: the element from which to extract the data
  •  Parent: allows the user to associate the element to another element in a hierarchical structure
  •  Stereotype: typically the node name; another element can be selected to show in the report
  •  Information: will show only these elements in the report (the report intersection will show the number of elements associated with the chosen information element)
  •  X-Axis and Y-Axis checkboxes: identifies the axis the element is assigned to (NOTE: these are not necessary in a Chart report)


5. Save
The Save button saves the information currently entered in the Element form, and disables editing. A warning pops up if a required field has not been completed. This Save button only saves this Element form; it does not save the overall report design (use Save Report in the Ribbon Bar for this).
