Summary: Tables show the row data returned to answer the question.

You can always switch your view to a table by using the Chart/Table view toggle on the top of the chart. The table view shows the data as it is returned from the answer to your question. You can sort any column by clicking on the header.


Un-Pivoting the Returned Data

Note that in some cases, AnswerDock returns data in a pivoted format. This means that the columns of the data can be in some cases, representing different segments of a dimension, instead of representing fields from your dataset. For example, in the chart above, the table view shows data pivoted by Ship Mode vertically and Category horizontally. If you need the data to be in list format without pivoting, you need to type List or Table in your question. This will generate the below unpivoted view:
