|Page Format||Each table is displayed on a single page in a separate spreadsheet. The last specified classifying factor indexes the columns in the spreadsheet.|
|Parallel Format||The tables occupy a single column but multiple tables can be put in a single spreadsheet. This is the default for a table with a single classifying factor.|
|Tabbed Format||For a table with three or more classifying factors, the table will be displayed as a tabbed-table with the first classifying factor’s groups indexing the tabs in the book.|
Opens a menu which can be used to plot the table currently specified by the factors in the Graphics list.
