New Features in Version 8. For more information about queries in the relational reporting style, see Working with Relational Queries.
For more information, see Suppress Empty Cells.
Line charts can now also include opening, closing, minimum, and maximum value markers. This allows you to sort using calculated members and measures. You can now suppress rows, columns, or rows and columns based on zero, null, divide by zero, and overflow values in reports created with relational, dimensionally-modeled relational, and OLAP data sources.
In addition, the sorting analywis data by member is enhanced. Listed below are new features since the last release.
For more information about color palettes, see Customizing the Color Palette of a Chart. Win-loss charts are microcharts where the value of each bar is either one or minus one. A new Line Type property for the Line object in the chart allows you to use vertical and 84 lines to connect the data analysia, forming a step-like progression.
When you apply a filter to a source report and then drill through to a target report, the target report is automatically filtered if the item you selected is in a query in the target report. You can now perform dynamic filtering of data in Report Studio reports.

Viewing lineage information ensures that you add the correct data items to a report. Marimekko charts are percent stacked charts in which the width of a column is proportional to the total of the column’s values. Crosstab Measures Can be Formatted Based on Other Crosstab Measures You can apply conditional styles to crosstab cells based on an adjacent value in the crosstab. Links to directly-related topics are included.
The Palette property provides palettes that match those from various versions of Excel. Intersections Tuples Can Include Calculated Members and Measures You can now insert calculated members and measures in an intersection tuple. This allows you to restrict when the drill path is available to users.
For more information, see Using Drill-through Access. New Chart Types The following new chart types are now available: This chart type is often used to represent a win or loss. For example, you can view the lineage information of a model calculation to see how it was created.
For example, you can map the member caption instead of anqlysis business key to the target. There is now support for multiple hierarchies of a single dimension for dimensionally-modeled relational data sources.
Enhanced Report Graphics A greater variety of syudio graphics and backgrounds are now available for dashboards and reports. For example, you can conditionally color the bubbles in a bubble chart based on any combination of the measures, and you can conditionally color an entire row of the crosstab based on any measure in the columns.
Synchronized Drilling Up and Drilling Down with Multiple Queries You can now link groups of data items from different queries in a report so that when you drill up or down on one query, data items in the other query also drill up or down. A member can appear sorted in the metadata tree and on the report without slowing performance.

New Query Properties The following two new properties allow you to customize queries: By default, the business key is used.
In previous releases, if a query contained multiple hierarchies from the same dimension, you encountered errors or no data appeared in your report. When the source report is based on a dimensional package and you choose to pass parameter values, you can now choose what property of the source metadata item to map to the target item.
Microcharts are miniature line and column charts. You can now insert calculated members and measures in an intersection tuple. Extended Suppression Capabilities You can now suppress rows, columns, or rows and columns based on zero, null, divide by zero, and overflow values in reports created with relational, dimensionally-modeled relational, and OLAP data sources. For more information, see Create an Intersection Tuple.
Individual segment height is a percentage of the respective column total value.
You can apply conditional styles to crosstab cells based on an adjacent value in the crosstab. For more information, see Add Background Effects. For more information about queries in the dimensional reporting style, see Working with Dimensional Queries.
For more information, see Insert a Hierarchy. Lineage Information for Data You can now view lineage information of a data item to see what the item represents before you add it to a report. Line charts now include an option for creating step line charts.
This means that the hierarchical relationship of a level is considered when member sorting is applied. A data item’s lineage information traces the item’s metadata back through the package and the package’s data sources.
For example, you can now include borders with rounded corners, transparent background fills and images, drop shadows, and background gradients. Also, members of a level are sorted in the context of their ancestor levels. You can now view lineage information of a data item to see what the item represents before you add it to a report.
