2865280 - Expressions for Calculated Measures cannot be edited


  • In a Custom Analytical Query, when creating or editing a Calculated Measure, the Expression Box is grayed out and there is no way to edit the Expression
  • For example:

  • S/4HANA Cloud 1911
  • Custom Analytical Queries App 


  • There is an Edit Link to the right of the Expression Box
  • Depending on the size and zoom percentage of your browser window, the Edit Link may be off the right side of the page or overwritten by another Dialog


  • SAP Product Development is developing a fix for this issue which will be included in S/4HANA Cloud 2002 due in February 2020
  • Workaround:
    • The issue is most common when the browser zoom settings are smaller than 100 percent
    • To temporarily address the issue, change the browser zoom settings to 100 percent or larger, if necessary, so that the Edit link appears on the Right side of the Expression box
    • E.g.: In a Chrome Browser, with zoom set to 90 percent, and the browser window is nearly full screen:
