Filter actions may be added to workbooks to create drill down capability.  The user is able to hover, select (click on), or right-click on a mark. This provides an easy way to transfer one or more common field(s) between worksheets.  The target sheet is filtered on the selected information.

Start by opening an existing Intelligence Analytics client workbook.
