A user can work with the data in a multidimensional report through a series of gestures that refine the data. Each of these gestures applies a dimensional style operation to the set of data being acted on. After these operations have been applied to the data, the user requires a method to understand how the data being presented has been defined. Solutions that exist today for this method will typically display a textual definition of the operations, usually in the form of a multidimensional expression (e.g. MDX).
