  • No value shows for some cells which uses restrict measure in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) story
  • Below server warning shows in the chart:
    - Only one current member selection is supported: The cell xxx or a dependent cell has 2 nested current member selections
    - Inconsistent calculations defined: Select enforced value exception of calculation entity xxxx, because this one has an enforce value exception.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a story with table.
  2.  The row has an account member. Column has Date dimension.
  3. Cick ... on the Account and select Add calculation. Type is Restricted Measure, name is "previous month". Select a measure and select "Date" dimension, values for input control set to "Previous Month".
  4. Add one more restrict measure "previous month-1".
  5. In column, add Cross Calculation as below.

  6. Set a filter for Date dimension, we can see two cells does not have values shows and warning shows.


As shown in the warning page: The cause is that only one current member selection is supported. The cell which does not have value shows has 2 nested current member selections. Previous month / Previous month -1and previous year. This result in inconsistent calculations.


Donot use nested member selections.
