  3. Toolbar

    Four options are available. The "Share..." button will open a menu that allows to share the link to the current page on Twitter, Linkedin, via eMail, or copy it to the Clipboard. The "Structure" link will show a page presenting the coding structure of the current data table. The "Download..." button will open a menu to start a download of the current table as a PDF document or of a CSV file with all the data behind the current data table. The "Help" link opens this page.

  4. Period navigation control

    Use the "<" and ">" links to change the current period to the previous or the next one. The ">|" link takes to the latest period available.

  5. Preset row-level expand/collapse

    These numeric links will expand/collapse the table's rows up to the chosen level. See the next point for how to work at a local level.

  6. Individual row-level expand/collapse

    When clicked, a "right", or "down", arrow will expand/collapse all the following table's rows with a higher level.

  7. Data value: link to underlying historical time series

    All values in the tables are linked to the time series/expressions underlying the table's cell (see also the "Structure" tool). Clicking the link, the corresponding time-series page will open.
