3296198 - Currency is shown as "##" in the SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC ) table

Symptom

The following behavior occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):

  • The data source of a table is the BW live connection.
  • In the styling tab of the table, you set the unit / Currencies in the column (or row).
  • You notice that for some columns, the currency is shown as "##" in the column (or row) header.
  • In this columns, there are some cells of 0 value.

In the Analysis for Office (AFO), the currency is shown as expected.

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud 

Cause

AFO logic disregards the unit/currency when the value is 0: '8 USD' + '0 EUR' = '8 USD'.

SAC considers the unit/currency when the value is 0: '8 USD' + '0 EUR' = '8 ##' - mixed units.

Resolution

This is as designed.

Meanwhile, SAC thinks about changing this behavior to match the AFO behavior. However, no estimated date can be shared at the moment.
