Drilling up and down is probably the simplest OLAP technique to master: it is simply a way of expanding and collapsing the cells in a Grid report to show their component parts. Row or column members can be drilled down to show the child members on the level below, or drilled up again to hide them.

To drill down on a cell, double-click on it. The following shows what happens when you double-click on the All Customer cell:

Double-clicking on the cell again returns the Grid to its previous state.

Drilling Options

Grid Properties > Appearance > Show drill indicator
If a member is drillable, a symbol can be displayed before the member's caption:
+ Member can be drilled down
- Member can be drilled up
Member cannot be drilled
Grid Properties > Appearance > Indent members when drilling
The indentation of the members in a Grid reflects what level they are on if this option is selected. The size of indentation can also be adjusted.
