What can I do with the table I created?



A number of tips on how to customise your table, how to save charts from the data and how to save the table or query for later use.


Rotating the table

Rotating a table enables you to change it around, for example by swapping the column headings and row headings.


Use these icons to rotate clockwise, anti-clockwise or rotate freely.

When rotating freely, you can use the arrow icons between the boxes to move the variables between the row headings and column headings. The arrow icons under the boxes can be used to sort the order of the variables. 

Save table

You can can download the table in different formats, e.g. Excel. Relational table is the most pivot friendly format.

Save your query

When saving your query you get a link that you have to store yourself. 

 Save query - steps

New September 2019: You can give an extension after the ID in the url. This changes the download format or link to your selections in the selection screen, e.g.:. https://www.ssb.no/en/sq/100000650?select

  • .xlsx - Get result as Excel-file
  • .xlsx_doublecolumn - Excel-file with double column
  • .json_stat -JSON-stat-file
  • .csv - commaseparated csv-file without heading
  • .csv_semicolon - semicolonseparated csv-file without heading
  • .csv_tabhead - tabseparated csv-file with heading
  • .relational_table – matrix or relational table (txt)
  • .html5_table – result as HTML5 table
  • .px - result as PX-file
  • ?select - shows your selctions on the selction screen

Removal of  /en from the url gives the Norwegian version .If you change the saved query, you will get a new ID. 

Saved query is not for automation. Users who run a lot of saved queries at release time, risk getting their IP blocked.
