Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a model from a simple excel file, for example:
  2. Create a Story.
  3. Add a chart based on the above created model.
    • The requirement is to see the max/min for all the managers.
      • Min/max should be the same for all the Managers except Jon.
      • Max John=3, Min John =1
  4. Add Managers to the dimensions of the chart.
  5. Create a new calculation:
  6. Notice that the value for John seems wrong (the expected value would be 3):


  • An aggregation is applied for the Manager dimension (in the calculation), so even if adding the Manager dimension to the chart dimensions, the values for each dimension member will be aggregated.
  • There is no option to use disaggregation.


  1. Delete the Manager from the chart dimensions.
  2. Notice that the chart works correctly.
  3. The Max Manager calculation aggregates all the managers and show the largest value across the dimension members.
    • In this example it is 5 (for Andy):
