Promote a report column to a hierarchy
This article shows you how to promote or replace a column with a full hierarchy in a report or scorecard.
First, create a new report from the main menu.
Drag the ProductID column from the [Sales].[SalesOrderDetail] table to the report grouping area (drop a column or hierarchy here...).
Also drag the ProductID column to the report body area; it will appear as a data label.
If you switch to View mode now, the report will display a list of product IDs which isn't very useful.
To promote this column to a hierarchy, simply drag a Product hierarchy from the Explore window and drop it onto the ProductID column in the grouping area.
Switch to View mode to see the report. Observe that the data label displays product names instead of IDs.
