    Appearance

    Pivoting

    These options apply when pivoting data

    Group by pivoted value
    Pivoted values are kept together, e.g. all columns for January will be together
    Nest by pivoted value
    Numeric columns are kept together, e.g. all columns for Sales Value will be together
    Show in-cell charts
    Useful when pivoting on a date, automatically displays a chart of the data.

    Pivot fixed on column name
    By default XLCubed stores the pivoted column index. You can instead switch so the column name is used. This is useful if the query can vary the columns it returns, e.g. from a stored procedure.
    When using named query for pivot
    For Sql queries you can specify the order for pivoted columns to be displayed (by default alphabetical order is used). If you specify an order query, you can also decide whether to emit all columns in the order query, or just those which have data.

    Sections

    This is used to configure the columns used as section headers, as described in the section help.

    Column Display

    When enabled, this feature allows you to reorder the columns of the query before they are displayed, and to suppress any columns that aren't required.

    This reordering is done after any pivoting has been done, so only affects the final displayed results.

    Query

    Auto-generate Query (default)
    XLCubed controls the query for the Table given the selected options.
    Manual Query
    You may type your own query in the edit field.
    Get Query from Excel range
    The entire query statement for the Table is taken from a cell on the worksheet.

    Interaction

    XLCubed can create named ranges based on Table elements that can then be used by other Excel objects, such as formulae and charts. See Named Ranges for more information.
