Dictionary Term

Drill Down


In computing, to drill down is to move deeper into a chain of data, from high-level information to more detailed, focused information—in other words, to move downward through a data hierarchy.

Many users carry out basic data drilldowns on a day-to-day basis, as when they click through a series of dropdown menus or ordered file folders.
