About Variables

The use of variables allows you to inject values during runtime directly into calculations, queries and equations. For example, you can make on-the-fly changes to cell overlays, custom KPIs, custom members/sets and filters to achieve highly sophisticated analytic outcomes.

Once you have created one or more variables, a list of variables will be available for you to view and edit. For a quick view of how variables work, see the examples of variables.

Variables are created per report. So if you have two reports in a book, a variable created in one of the reports will not be present in the other report.
