Building a cross tab
The preceding tutorial walked through the procedures for building a basic cross tab. In this section, you learn how to create more complex cross tabs, including how to display multiple dimensions and measures, how to customize row and column headings, and how to create custom measures.
Areas of a cross tab
A cross tab consists of the following three areas, as shown in Figure 24‑35:
*The row area
*The column area
*The detail area

The row and column areas are where you insert dimensions from a cube. The dimension values form the row and column headings of the cross tab. The detail area is where you insert a measure or measures from a cube to display aggregate data.
