MicroStrategy - Report Types

The reports created in MicroStrategy can be seen from a different prospective. Some can be seen as only numbers and text, while some other only as graphs. We can also combine the textual and graphical visualizations together.

The reports created in MicroStrategy can be seen from a different prospective. Some can be seen as only numbers and text. While some other only as graphs. We can also combine the textual and graphical visualizations together.

Following are the three report types used in MicroStrategy Desktop.

  • Grid Reports − These reports display only textual information in the form of grids showing rows and columns of data.

  • Graph Reports − These reports show various graphs created from the data sets.

  • Combined Reports − These reports can show the combination of both the Grid and Graphical reports.

Let’s discuss these types of reports in detail.

Grid Reports

Consider the report created from the employee data earlier. As we display only the textual information showing the employee ID and salary for each of the departments, it is an example of a grid report.

Graph Reports

We can choose an appropriate graphical visualization of the data from the gallery of visualizations available in MicroStrategy. In the following screenshot, we see the bar chart graph created for the above data set by simply clicking the bar chart visualization available in the right pane.

Combination Graph

We can combine both the grid and graph charts by adding both the types of visualizations on one screen.
