6.31. Changing Columns in Results Summary

Applies to: @RISK 5.x–7.x

I'd like to change the statistics that are displayed in the Results Summary window, or the Excel reports Input Results Summary and Output Results Summary. For example, I'd like to see the 10th and 90th percentiles rather than the 5th and 95th. Or I'd like to add the median or standard deviation to the columns. How can I do it?

Follow this procedure:

  1. Run a simulation and in the Results section of the @RISK ribbon click Summary.
  2. Right-click in the column headings and select Columns for Table.
  3. Make whatever changes you wish, by adding or removing check marks (tick marks). To change the percentiles, click the "..." next to the 5% and 95%, and change them to whatever you wish.
  4. Close the Results Summary window.

These changes will apply only to the Results Summary window and the Excel reports Input Results Summary and Output Results Summary created during the current session. To set these columns as defaults for all @RISK workbooks, both new and existing workbooks, follow this additional step:

  1. Click Utilities » Application Settings. In the Windows section, you'll see that "Results Window Settings" is set to Automatic. Click on the word Automatic to make a down arrow visible. Click on that arrow and select "Set to Current Window Columns". Click OK.
