Data Analysis Web Part

Data Analysis is a Web Part that you can add to a custom Web Part Page in Microsoft Office Project Web Access. With this Web Part, you can review summarized project information in formats that can help you examine specific aspects of your project, or compare data among multiple projects. This Web Part uses the Microsoft Office Web Components technology to build pivot tables and pivot charts.

When you create a page containing the Data Analysis Web Part:

  • You can expand or collapse the level of detail in the report.

  • You can choose among all the applicable project, task, resource, or assignment fields for use in the pivot table or pivot chart.

  • You can save a pivot table or pivot chart as an image for use in a report or presentation.

Note: Data Analysis is also a standard page in Office Project Web Access. Under Reporting on the Quick Launch pane, click Data Analysis.

Common properties of Web Parts

All Web Parts share a common set of properties that control their appearance, layout, and advanced characteristics.

Note: The common Web Part properties that you see in the tool pane may be different from what is documented in this section for several reasons:

  • To see the Advanced section in the tool pane, you must have appropriate permission.

  • For a specific Web Part, a Web Part developer may have chosen not to display one or more of these common properties or may have chosen to create and display additional properties that are not listed below in the Appearance, Layout, and Advanced sections of the tool pane.

  • Some permission and property settings may disable or hide Web Part properties.

Appearance

Property

Description

Title

Specifies the title of the Web Part that appears in the Web Part title bar.

Height

Specifies the height of the Web Part.

Width

Specifies the width of the Web Part.

Chrome State

Specifies whether the entire Web Part appears on the page when a user opens the Web Part Page. By default, the chrome state is set to Normal and the entire Web Part appears. Only the title bar appears when the state is set to Minimized.

Chrome Type

Specifies whether the title bar and border of the Web Part frame are displayed.

Layout

Property

Description

Hidden

Specifies whether the Web Part is visible when a user opens the Web Part Page. If the check box is cleared, the Web Part is visible only when you are designing the page and has the suffix (Hidden) appended to the title.

You can hide a Web Part if you want to use it to provide data to another Web Part through a Web Part connection, but you don't want to display the Web Part.

Direction

Specifies the direction of the text in the Web Part content. For example, Arabic is a right-to-left language; English and most other European languages are left-to-right languages.

Zone

Specifies the zone on the Web Part Page where the Web Part is located.

Note: Zones on the Web Part Page are not listed in the list box when you do not have permission to modify the zone.

Zone Index

Specifies the position of the Web Part in a zone when the zone contains more than one Web Part.

To specify the order, type a positive integer in the text box.

If the Web Parts in the zone are ordered from top to bottom, a value of 1 means that the Web Part appears at the top of the zone. If the Web Parts in the zone are ordered from left to right, a value of 1 means that the Web Part appears on the left of the zone.

For example, when you add a Web Part to an empty zone that is ordered from top to bottom, the Zone Index is 1. When you add a second Web Part to the bottom of the zone, its Zone Index is 2. To move the second Web Part to the top of the zone, type 1, and then type 2 for the first Web Part.

Note: Each Web Part in the zone must have a unique Zone Index value. Therefore, changing the Zone Index value for the current Web Part can also change the Zone Index value for other Web Parts in the zone.
