The look and feel of the component can be fully customized by means of CSS. It refers to colors, borders, buttons, pop-ups, and grid cells. But there are cases when just CSS is not enough for pivot table report. For example, when you want to represent the numbers in cells by pictograms showing how ‘good’ or ‘bad’ these numbers are.

USEFUL: Add running totals to enhance web reporting

In today’s blog post I want to tell you how to get more from Flexmonster pivot with the help of running totals. To begin with, I’ll tell you what is it - running totals. This is one of the aggregations available for CSV, JSON, FDS databases, MongoDB, MS Analysis Services, and even custom data source APIs. Imagine a list of numbers. A running total keeps track of the sum of these numbers as you go down the list, adding each new number and subtracting any that are removed.
