Summarization options in the grid menu

The grid menu provides a list of common calculations, called summarizations, from which to choose when creating a quick summary directly in the grid.

You can choose from the following types of summarizations when performing a quick summary in the grid.
Note: In the list below, [COLUMN] indicates either the column name or the column label of the selected column. By default, the column label is displayed. However, when the Show with column names option is selected in the Tabulation panel, the column name is displayed instead.
