3220403 - The running total (Year to Date) didn't work well for a measure which is created with formula and has Exception Aggregation set


The running total (Year to Date) didn't work well for a measure which is created with formula and has Exception Aggregation set.

  • No issue for original measure
  • If remove the Exception Aggregation setting for the measure, it also works as expected.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Model, prepare data only contains the data from January to June.
  2. In Accounts, add a formula measure and set something in Exception Aggregation. E.g. set it to Sum and select some dimensions for this exception.
  3. In Story, create a column chart and add a calculated measure.
  4. Set this calculated measure as Restricted measure and let it compute the running total as Year to Date.
  5. Find that in the column chart, it only shows data from January to June. But July to December is missing.


Development team has confirmed this is a BY DESIGN behavior.

With Exception aggregation set in the measure, the result is computed with the related dimensions. If there is null data, it will be converted as Unbooked data. Therefore, in the scenario above, it didn't show the data for July to December.


Edit the story, modify the chart and check on "Show Unbooked data" for dimension to make the data come to the chart.
