Introduction to Tables - Rows, Columns and Wafers

When you are working in SuperWEB2, you will be building up tables that contain the information you are interested in.

Rows and Columns

Basic tables only have fields in the rows and columns. For example, in this table the Marital Status field is in the columns, and the Gender field is in the rows:

A basic table with results organised into rows and columns


Adding a field to the wafer turns the two dimensional table into a three dimensional cube.

For example, by adding Area to the wafer we can see the numbers for specific states. Select the state you are interested in from the drop-down list to update the table:

A table displaying results for New South Wales after Area was added as a wafer
Table displaying results for Victoria after the wafer for state was adjusted

Wafers are enabled by default, but your administrator may have disabled this feature, in which case you will only be able to add fields to the table rows and columns.

Adding Multiple Fields to an Axis

You can add multiple fields to the rows, columns, and wafers. The fields will either be concatenated or nested, depending on how you add them. Learn more...


In addition to rows, columns, and wafers, it is also possible to apply filters to a table. Only records that match the filters will be included in the results. Learn more...
