Table View

Table view lets you compare multiple measures of different types or units side-by-side. You can also swap rows and columns, similar to a spreadsheet pivot table.

If you are not already in table view, select Switch to table view from the dropdown list of visualization types.

Navigating Table View

As with pivotGantt chartlist, and stacked chart views, table view data can be grouped, colored, and filtered. In the example below, four measures under Calendarized latest estimates are being compared. Values are grouped by period and colored by stage

To swap rows with columns, simply click on the swap icon Pivot_icon.pngas illustrated below.

Table views can be switched to stacked chart view, preserving the first four measure selections. The first measure will become the bar, the second a solid line, the third a dashed line and the fourth a dotted line.

TIP: You can copy table data and paste it into Excel for further analysis or sharing outside of Wave, such as in a PowerPoint document.
