    I have always said Drill Through was an underutilized feature. There is a constant struggle for customers who have a desire to report at a lower level of detail for actuals than they input their plan data. The temptation is to design their models that contain additional master data to support this lower level of detail. While this does work, there can be tradeoffs in the performance and usability of that kind of ragged hierarchy. Employing drill through to detail is a valid way to circumvent the pitfalls of this situation. This is a big decision that requires careful consideration, but if you need more information, message me!
