How to explore the Dependency Diagram?
Once opened, the Diagram shows how the data flows between Blocks (Transactional Lists and Metrics). This diagram is limited to the flow involving the initial Block for which you generated the diagram.

A formula bar allows you to have an overview of each Block's formula.
By clicking on other related Blocks, you will be able to:
