Friends,

A drill down report is a type of report that displays summary data with links to related detail data in other reports. If a report has at least one group column the we can set Drilldown functionality to that report. You have to use VISIBILITY property to implement drilldown functionality in your report. Lets see how to configure Drilldown in a report. I dsigned a report with three group columns(category,subcategory and product) and few details. PFB the screenshot of the same.
