How-To: About location of Unit/Currencies shown in Table in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)

  • Sometimes the Unit/Currencies of measures appear in each cell, and sometimes it appears in the subtitle
  • How to change the display location of unit/currencies


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2019.*

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to SAC tenant.
  2. Create a story with Table on sample model [BestRunJuice_SampleModel].
    => Only measure [Gross Margin] appears in the table by default.
  3. Add one dimension like [Sales Manager] into Rows.
    => Both unit and currencies appears in the subtitle of table - "Million USD".
  4. Set Filters for Account to show another measure [Quantity sold].
    => Unit "Million" still appears in the subtitle.
    => US Dollar appears in all cells of [Gross Margin].
  5. Select Data region and then go to Styling panel.
  6. Change Scale of [Quantity sold] to Thousand.
    => The Unit/Currencies for two measures appear in all cells.


  • This is by design.
  • If all values in the table has same unit or same currencies, either of them will appear in the subtitle by default.
  • If the values in the table has different unit or different currencies, either of them will appear in each cell by default.


  • Besides the default location, you can choose to display unit/Currencies to in the column or row header.
    -> Go to Styling and then change Display unit / Currencies to Column or Row.
  • It is impossible to change default location of unit/currencies. It will appears in either subtitle or each cell depending on the values in the table.
