These are the XLCubed installation level defaults which are applied to any new workbooks opened during the Excel session.

  • Main

    • Format File – the default FormatSheet location.
    • Default at level view in member tree – Sets the default view of hierarchies to be level based, rather than member based
    • Sort hierarchies alphabetically – rather than the cube defined order
    • Show dimensions in folders – Display folders shown at a level above the dimension rather than beneath the dimension
    • Limit number of members returned in tree to – limits to specified value in user interface
    • Show right-click menu option at top (restart Excel to apply) – The XLCubed right click menu option is by default at the bottom.
    • Use single members on filters – Implements ‘select and replace’ on hierarchies in the filter area of grids (selecting a member replaces any existing selected member)
    • Automatically select Children of first member
    • Display Dimension Name with Hierarchy Name – prefixes the hierarchy name with the dimension name
    • Auto apply changes in Task Pane – Grid task pane defaults to ‘Auto Apply’, i.e. changes are made instantaneously
    • Unicode Compatibility (Excel 2003) – ** Note should only be set in Excel 2003 / 2002 where Unicode member names exist. This is required for Unicode support in Excel versions pre 2007.


  • Publication
    • Default Web Address – the default web address for publishing
    • Maximum number of columns allowed – The maximum number of columns allowed per page
    • Maximum number of rows allowed – The maximum number of rows allowed per page
    • Log Publication Process – in the event of a problem, logs additional detail
    • Check Web Compatibility – checks the workbook pre-publication for any known compatibility issues.
