3307805 - The currency symbol $^2 would appear in front of values in a story of SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • The currency symbol $^2 would appear in front of values in a story in SAC when this measure is calculated in the model by multiplying another two measures whose "Unit & Currencies" have been selected as "Currency" in the model


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2023

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to the SAC tenant 
  2. Create a model and open the Account dimension
  3. In this Account dimension of this model, select the "Units & Currencies" for two members A and B as "Currency"
  4. Add a new member "CurrencyTest" to this Account dimension in this model
  5. Define a multiplying calculation "A*B" for this new member "CurrencyTest"
  6. Select the "Units & Currency" for this new member "CurrencyTest" as Blank or as "Currency"
  7. Save this model
  8. Create a story based on this model
  9. Add the Account dimension members A, B and "CurrencyTest" to this story
  10. Observe that the currency symbol $^2 would be displayed in front of the values of "CurrencyTest"


  • This is by design behavior in SAP Analytics Cloud
  • MDS does fully processing on units i.e.
    2 m * 2m = 4m²
    2$ * 2$ = 2$² 


Currently, this behavior is a product design
