Property Value

Type Description

true to calculate summary variations and running totals throughout the Pivot Grid; false to calculate them independently within individual groups.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to AllowCrossGroupVariation
.OptionsData .AllowCrossGroupVariation


The summary variation feature can be enabled via the PivotGridFieldBase.SummaryDisplayType property. To enable running totals, use the PivotGridFieldBase.RunningTotal property.

In the image below, absolute summary variations are calculated for the “Profit (var)” data field. The AllowCrossGroupVariation property is set to false, so the summary variations for the cells within the group “Year=1995” are calculated independently from the previous group “Year=1994”. Note the column “Year=1995, Qtr=1, Profit (var)” is empty.


If the AllowCrossGroupVariation property is set to true, summary variations in the group “Year=1995” are calculated taking into account values of the previous group “Year=1994”.
