About row definitions in Management Reporter

A row definition is a template that specifies the contents of each row in a Microsoft Office PerformancePoint 2007 Management Reporter report. A row definition includes the following:

  • Descriptive text that adds meaning to the report by creating section headings, lines, and spaces (for example, Cash or Total Revenue)

  • Links to financial data, which can include segment values or dimension values in the source system, or cells in an Excel spreadsheet file

    You can set up a row definition to pull data from the financial data source system each time the report is generated. A row definition can contain up to 20,000 financial data source rows.

  • Row totals and formulas that are based on the linked financial data

Usually, each row in a row definition consists of one of the following:

  • References to the financial data source system

  • Totals or calculations based on the data

  • Formatting

You can create row definitions in two ways:

  • Manually, by entering row information into a new row definition

  • Automatically, by pulling row information directly from the financial data source as described in the following topics
