Reproducing the Issue

Create a Table based on Single, Cross or Multidataset domain, add filters and preview - no data returned or missing data.


There are multiple possible causes for this behavior:

  • Permissions
  • Filters
  • Columns selected have no data


Do the the following steps and if your report returns no data.

  • Permissions issues
    • You may not have permission to view data in the report you are creating.
    • Review your reporting permissions.
    • If you are creating a shared report that contains data you do not have access to, you will not be able to preview data when creating the report.

  • Preview report before applying filters
    • Preview the report prior to adding filters to ensure there is data in each column of the report.
    • Check the Data Mapping document to ensure you have selected columns that are being used.
    • Remove one column of data at a time from the report and then preview the report after removing each column until you get results returned.
    • Filters issue
      • Remove filters from the data set to see if records are returned.
      • If Data is returned with no filters, there may be no data that matches your filter criteria.
      • If rule added in the filter > Check your options when filtering by a rule.
    • Column selected has no data
      • Add the column you want to filter on to your report and preview the report to see what types of data are included in the column.
      • If the report returns no data, then there is no data in the column.
