Modifying Headers - Automatically Removing The NET Row

From Q
Jump to: navigation, search

This rule hides the NET row on tables and charts. Note that there are other tools available in Q for doing the same thing but in a more transparent way:

  • You can right-click on a category on a table and select Hide.
  • When exporting to Office there is an option called Ignore NET and SUM.
  • On Charts there is an option called Show NETs/SUMs.
