Create a breakdown, breakdown source, and breakdown mappings, and associate the

The breakdown uses values from this field as breakdown elements and breaks
down collected data based on the value of this field in each record.
The Define the breakdown tab displays different

If a mapping exists between a breakdown with
the selected source and a field on a parent of the indicator table,
you can only select an existing breakdown to create the mapping for.
If no such mapping exists for a parent table, you can select an
existing breakdown or create a new breakdown.

and a breakdown mapping exists for the specified breakdown and field,
review the settings. You do not need to make any changes.
On the Link to indicators tab, select any additional
indicators that you want to apply the breakdown to.
You can apply the breakdown to other indicators with the same source table as
the indicator you selected first. If the breakdown already applies to an
indicator, that indicator is not displayed.
