Re: Text in Pivot Tables


Hi Kate,

Unsure if anyone else has replied but we tested a Data Element to capture ‘Comments’ in Data Sets & found out it is displayed only when exported to an Excel file in the Pivot Table app/section - an extract is attached.

If anyone knows of an update/fix/better alternative please share.

Subject: [Dhis2-users] Text in Pivot Tables

Hi All,

We're *relatively* new users of DHIS2 and are trying to see written text in our pivot tables - with no success so far.

2 questions for this group:

  1.  Do Pivot Tables provide the ability to see written text entered into the system (the text is connected to a data element) ?
  2.  If Yes, is there a particular/different way to query the system to see it?
Thanks all!
