The Defaults tab display the default layout settings for charts, tables and titles, as well as the standard background colors to be added to cells in tables where we find significant differences.

For Frequency, Cross and Grid Charts/Tables a default layout is selected among all the layouts defined.

Titles: Some prefer that only the primary variable text is added to cross tables and cross charts, while other prefers that both primary and secondary variable text is added.

OfficeReports provides 5 different default setting:

  • User defined title
  • Variable
  • Optional variable
  • Variable x Optional variable
  • Optional variable x Variable


The default Cross title seperator is ‘x’, but the user can select any text as seperator.
