2984532 - Column headers having hierarchy can not be aligned vertically and row headers having hierarchy can not be aligned horizontally in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • Can not vertically align column header text to middle or bottom when dimension has hierarchy
  • Can not horizontally align row header text to center or right when dimension has hierarchy 


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Add table to Story
  2. Add dimensions having hierarchy in row and column sections
  3. Select a column header and open the styling panel
  4. In the alignment section of the styling panel, click on the middle or bottom vertical alignment
  5. Notice the column header doesn't move and stays at the top of the cell
  6. Repeat step 3 and 4 for row header but with the horizontal alignment of center or right. Notice the header text will remain on the left of the cell


This is by design behaviour as of SAP Analytics Cloud.


  • Header row cells in hierarchy are not supported to be horizontally aligned; Header columns cells in hierarchy are not supported to be vertical aligned.
