Aggregation : To display aggregate data
sum/Avg salary by each individual employee
1) Drag ename on columns and salary on rows we will get sum(salary) of each and individual employee
2) Now change measure type as Avg
choose salary option--Choose measure type as "Avg"
Disaggregation : To display each and every transaction
When you look at the aggregated data in the views above, each bar represents all transactions for a specific employee summed up or averaged into a single value. Now say that you want to see the individual salary transactions for each employee . You can create a view like that by selecting Analysis > Aggregate Measures.
