Consolidating data is a useful way to combine data from different sources into one report.
For example, if you have a Pivot Table of expense figures for each of your regional offices, you can use a data consolidation to roll up these figures into a corporate expense report.
To Merge or Consolidate coverage, simply click on the Project Name from the NCover Code Central or Desktop interface and then select the executions you wish to combine.
For both the Merge and the Consolidate option, the combined coverage numbers reflect the union of the coverage between the individual profiling runs.
The following example shows four ranges in cross-tab format.
Data consolidation can use page fields that contain items representing one or more of the source ranges.
The Consolidate option will also combine selected results into a single line item but it does not retain the original executions.
Once a consolidation is created, the original executions are combined permanently.
