Multiple format types (display, numeric, conditional) can be set on a single element, and many elements on a single report may have different combinations of formatting. If the formatting options do not conflict, they are merged. If the formatting options conflict, there is a predictable method to resolve conflicting formats. Here is the order of precedence for report formatting:
- Formats applied to an element take precedence over global report formats.
- Conditional formats take precedence over numeric formats
- Numeric formats take precedence over display formats
