Library Object Type Path to AllowCrossGroupVariation
WinForms Controls PivotGridControl
Reporting XRPivotGrid
ASP.NET MVC Extensions MVCxPivotGrid
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls ASPxPivotGrid


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”.
