Dear Support

I have a Category that have the years (2003, 2004, 2005 …) and a Category Months (January, February, March, April, …, December) both are Column Categories.
I would like to know if it is possible to Collapse January and February for the year 2003 only. When I Collapse January and February the system Collapse it for all the Years.

Regards,

Rui

I have selected the year 2003 plus January and February, I done Collapse and it works, in fact it just Collapse January and February of 2003.
But when I want to Expand it doesn’t appear the Expand selection. I have to Collapse January and February for all the years and then Expand.

Thanks,
Rui

One other thought – if you find yourself doing quite a bit of collapsing and uncollapsing of items to look at different presentations of your data – you might want to consider using views. Creating a view of a matrix allows you to slice and dice the model without changing the layout of the original matrix.

Choose ‘Insert –> Table View’ from the Quantrix menu to create views.

Good point! That is an issue we need to address programmatically. Another work around is in this case is to again shift select the year item and the collapsed item, then the un-collapse will become enabled.

This issue has been logged in our issue tracking database for resolution.

Hello Rui – Thanks for your post…

To accomplish this, click on the 2003 year item, then press the ‘shift’ key and then click on the month items you want to collapse. This will only select the month items in the 2003 year category. Then you can collapse the items.

That should work! Post again if not…
