Dynamic View Report

The Dynamic View presents a report based on premined table data. The structure of dynamic table data is derived from the Monarch data model, assigned to the document type. The data is put into the DS database during the indexing (filing) process.

On the Dynamic View Report page, you can modify the fields hierarchy, display and hide fields, apply dynamic filters, add calculated fields, joined fields and statistic fields. The resulting view definition can be saved to the DS database for reusing.

  • Hierarchy Levels: The placement of column titles above the table represents the levels of fields' hierarchy. You can modify the hierarchy of fields, by dragging column headers to the space above the table. Data will be grouped by these columns. You can drag any number of column headers to any level. This allows creating different groupings of fields, to obtain the desired view of the report data. Use arrows to expand or collapse rows with data.

  • Statistic fields: After you assign a column heading to a  hierarchy level, you can add an aggregation field to the Dynamic View Report. Point to a column heading on any hierarchy level, and click the plus sign that will appear on the right of its name, to open the Aggregation dialog box.

  • View Report: Click this button to view a report in a new window.
