Crosstabs Enhancements

Total(Net) Segments

When creating a segment you can select the logic option "Total (Net)" available under "Question Logic."   When you add this segment to a group, it displays the count/percentages of the segments within the group only.  When the Total (Net) is not in a group, the count/percentages is based on all segments in the crosstab (where each segment is joined by Boolean OR).
