2352012 - Unable to edit a duplicated calculated dimension


  • Unable to edit a duplicated calculated dimension


  • SAP Lumira Desktop 1.31

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new document on any data source
  2. Navigate to the Visualize tab
  3. Click on a dimension and then click on the options button 
  4. Click on "Create Calculate Dimension" from the drop down list
  5. Enter a dimension name in the "Dimension Name" text box, then enter a formula as desired into the text area labelled "Formula",  and click the "OK" button
  6. Click on the new dimension, click the options button and click "Duplicate" from the drop down list
  7. Click on the duplicated dimension, click on the options button


  • This behaviour is by design
  • When a calculated dimension is duplicated, this duplicate is considered a non-calculated dimension and therefore cannot be edited



To create a calculated dimension based on the duplicated dimension

  1. Click on the duplicated dimension and click options
  2. Click "Create calculated dimension" from the drop down list
