3114494 - Member search of adding members doesn't work as expected in SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning (SAC)


You want to add new lines (rows) to the planning table.
In some cases when you try to find an existing dimension member, the system returns error "Couldn't find an unfiltered existing member for that ID. Press enter to create new member".
But that dimension member exists in the master data. If you try to search that same member for couple of times, then at some point system finds it and you can continue with planning.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a story.
  2. Right click a member in your table.
  3. Select Add Member.
  4. Enter the ID of an existing member.


This is a product issue.


The fix will be included in wave 2021.20.

As a workaround, you may double click on the newly added cell, then paste the value to be searched. In this way the search should always work.
