2792311 - RESULTLOOKUP formula returns message "Member must be a leaf member" if member is not base level in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


RESULTLOOKUP formula in Advanced Formula returns message "Member must be a leaf member" if member is not base level.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2019.9

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new Data Action
  2. Add Advanced Formula step
  3. Add a RESULTLOOKUP formula that references a parent member.


This is a current restriction of Resultlookup function in Data Action.

The feature to Support Parent/Formula member in Resultlookup in Data Action is in our backlog for future consideration.


The workaround for the moment is to manually calculate sum of all the children members in the Data Action.
