PerformancePoint dashboards may contain spreadsheet reports to provide supplemental reports that do not require user interactivity. For example, suppose that you are creating a dashboard for a sales team and that, along with reports and scorecards that show sales results, you also want to include a price list. You decide to create a spreadsheet report to display that price list as a static view. That is, dashboard consumers can view, but not modify, the information in your spreadsheet.

As another example, suppose that you are creating a dashboard for a financial executive You want to include a scorecard and reports that show current performance, but you also want to include a spreadsheet that shows results for the previous year. You create a spreadsheet report to display that information. That way, your financial executive can view both current and past performance in your dashboard.
