WebLog Expert allows
you not only to change properties of existing report items (e.g.
number of rows in tables), but also to create your own tables and
charts. Most predefined tables and charts can be also

can be managed in .
Properties dialog contains the
Name of the table displayed in the report. You
can use the %TrackedFile% macro in
the name if the Special table type option is set to "Tracked files"
and the %Goal% macro if the option is
set to "Goals".
Table category name. You can either choose an
existing category or specify a new one.
Table section name. You can use the
%TableName% macro in the section
Category and section names are used to
determine location of the table in the report. They are also shown
in the report contents. E.g. you can specify "Top Virtual Domains"
as table name, "Access Statistics" as category and "Virtual
Domains" as section.
Show custom table for each tracked file or
goal. If the table type is set to "Tracked files", visitors that
requested the tracked file as well as requests for the file will be
analyzed to generate the associated custom table. If the type is
set to "Goals", the conversion and conversion rate counts will
include statistics for the tracked goal.
You can specify whether to exclude requests
from spiders and/or failed requests. The Exclude requests from spiders setting
has effect if the Count visitors
as spiders program option is disabled.
Use this setting to translate the table and
associated charts when custom report language is specified in the
program options or profile properties. You need to have a proper
language file that contains translations for the strings used in
the table to get it properly shown in the reports.
Don't update the table when a new version of
the program is installed or when tables are loaded from the program
options. This setting is useful if you modify a standard table and
don't want it to be overwritten.
specify main data, group data (if any), columns, base column and
sort order used in the table.
Main data and group data contain data based on hits (e.g. file name or
status code) as well as data based on visitors (e.g. visitor
referring URL). You can use both main/group data based on hits or
visitors as well as specify main data based on hits with group data
based on visitors and vice versa.
you specify file name as main data and directory as group data, the
program will show files grouped by directories. If you specify file
name as main data and referring URL as group data, the program will
show information on files requested by visitors that came from
different referring URLs. If you specify referring URL as main data
and file name as group data, the program will show information on
referrers of visitors who requested different files.
choose various columns.
The conversion column includes number of visitors that reached any
goal. If a table has the "Goals" type, the conversion column
includes number of visitors that reached the tracked goal
the base column is used to sort the table and is also shown in the associated

Custom button. Available options depend on data
allow you to specify how to modify values before showing them in
·Count one hit value per visitor
- if several different values have
been extracted from visitor requests only one of them will be
counted in the number of visitors. E.g. even if a visitor used
multiple browsers only one of them will be counted. This option
doesn't affect other columns (hits/page views/bandwidth/etc.) shown
in the table.
·Always show totals for visitors
- show totals for the visitors column
even if the same visitor may be counted in several rows (e.g. if
he/she used multiple browsers). In this case total number of
visitors shown in the table may be more than total number of
visitors shown in the report general statistics.
·Grouped tables with the goal
main data have the Show grouped data in N columns
option available. Goals are shown in
columns instead of rows if the setting is enabled.
Filters allow you to
specify which information should be shown in the table.
use hit and visitor filters at the same time. In this case WebLog
Expert first filters visitors and gets visitor data from the
remaining visitors. Then it applies hit filters to the hits of
these visitors and gets hit data from the hits.
create charts associated with the table if no group data is
specified. Chart names can include the %TableName% macro.
Click the More button to enter names of weekly/monthly/yearly
charts that are used when the Create weekly/monthly/yearly charts
instead of daily ones profile
property is enabled.
