Drilling Down on a Chart

Charts have drill-down capability. If you have a chart where the data repre­sented is a summary or group of any sort, then when hovering the mouse pointer over the desired value in the chart, the drill-down cursor appears. Therefore, if you have a bar chart in which the height of the bar is dependent on that region’s sales, you could drill down on the bar to see the data that makes up the bar. If your chart contains the detail data, then there is nothing more to see and drill down is not possible.

The legend is available for drilling down as well as the chart itself. Hover the mouse pointer over the legend label on which you want to drill down and’ double-click to activate the drill-down tab.
