2582315 - Waterfall chart displays bars as negative when the values are positive in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • Selecting waterfall charts displays as negative values some of the values that should be positive.
  • If you change the chart type to Bar/Column, it displays correctly the positive numbers above the axis and negative below the axis.
  • Account type of [EXP] is being used in the model.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2017.24.4

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a chart and select waterfall.
  2. Mix measures from a planning model and add calculations to have positive and negative values.


  • Using [EXP] as the Account type causes that values have been flipped to display them as negative values in the stories.


  • This is a bydesign behavior.
  • When creating calculated measures (Calc = Account) for the [EXP] members the waterfall chart appears properly with positive values.
