This function is only available if you have chosen a hierarchy for at least one characteristic. You can choose a hierarchy using the function Extras ® Choose hierarchy in the report definition or Edit ® Hierarchy ® Choose from the report list.

The function Expand expands the entire report hierarchy one level. That means that every "+" currently visible becomes a "-", and all the nodes one level below them become visible.

If the cursor is positioned on one row of the report, the system only expands that row.
