2582730 - Only one Measure dimension can be created when an account dimension is used creating a model in SAP Analytics Cloud


You are transforming data imported from a data source in a new model. During transformation (wrangling), you select a dimension and you see the following warning message:

Only one Measure dimension can be created when an account dimension is used.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to SAP Analytics Cloud
  2. Create a new model importing data from any available data source. The data has multiple measures
  3. You select one of the dimensions and try to change it to Account.


This is by design. Account is a Planning concept and can only have a single measure associated.


This Dimension should be a regular dimension.
