What are Data Map Report defaults?
These options are designed for large data maps where you want to "get it right the first time." They can save you a lot of repetitive work.
Create the data map
View end tables
Here is a typical end table, where the default was changed to sorting on profit in descending order. If this wasn't the original default and you didn't have the Report Defaults option, you would have to double-click the Profit column in each of the end tables to get this sort order. In other words, the Report Defaults option saves you a lot of repetitive work.
View data map report
If you create a data map report, as explained in the corresponding help topic, the end table sections of the report are also sorted in the selected default sort order. In the example shown here, the sort order was changed to descending on items sold. In addition, if you go back to the map and change the report defaults, as in the previous step, the sort order will automatically change in these report tables as well.
