    Note

    Since the Descriptive Statistics app is configured to use  variation in the narratives it generates, the text you see may differ slightly.

    For example, the following are two variations of the same sentence:

    Overall, Sales across all Markets is €85.4M.

    The overall total for Sales across all Markets is €85.4M.

 

You're now ready to generate the narrative and see the effects of the selections you made in the data and narrative options.
