Rows, Columns and Slicers

Data Explorer works by dragging elements from the Dimension Tree directly onto the grid.

The three options Slicers, Columns and Rows are known as axes.

The rows and columns of data are basically a table and so you can begin by simply dragging the business concepts for your data onto these axes on the grid and experiment to make sense of what data is being collated.

The slicer axis adds a 3rd dimension to the table.
