The profile data table gives you an overview of the overall state of a profile.
Once you grasp the big picture by examining the profile at a high level, you can click on the table cells to learn the specifics about a given entry in a profile. The table displays individual profiles as rows. Columns in the table represent individual entries within this profile set. Profile entry names are listed across the top of the table.
The left column of the table lists all the profiles in the profile set. Indentation is used to represent profile hierarchy. Child profiles are indented under their parent profile. You can expand or collapse the profile hierarchy display. A table cell at the intersection of a row and column represents a profile entry (column) in a specific profile (row). You can view the content of a table cell by clicking on it. This content is the value of the profile entry.
The appearance of a cell is an indicator of the state of the entry the cell represents. A key to the symbols used in cells appears at the top of the Profile Data table. A profile entry can have one of the following states:
