how exactly the 'Excluded Section' in the pivot view, will effect the entire report.
In one of my report when i place one column in excluded section, one set of data is coming, when i remove that column in the Excluded section , data is effecting and its changing...why this is happening??
Even if the column is excluded in pivot, it will be there in the query sent to database. If you exclude an attribute, and if it changes the granularity of the report, you have to make sure you set aggregations properly in pivot measures, otherwise you can get unexpected results, and individual row level or even grand totals.
