2923806 - Calculated member appears in a table even if the option "Show Unbooked members" is NOT selected in SAP Analytics Cloud


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

  • Calculated account member (through a model formula) appears in a story table even if the option "Show Unbooked members" is NOT selected.
  • Example Account A = Account B / Account C, if Account B does NOT contain data and Account C does contain data, Account A is shown in the story table while it is not supposed to appear because the user does not allow unbooked data to appear.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a member with formula for example in Account dimension Account A = Account B/Account C
  2. Publish data for only Account C, Account A and Account B should be unbooked then
  3. Create a story table and filter Account dimension with the three members above and do not select the option "Show Unbooked data"
  4. Remove Account B and Account C from the filter, Account A should also disappear as it is unbooked, however it is still displayed which is not expected
  5. Remove data for Account C and publish again, this time Account A disappears

So if one of the formula members has data assigned the system does not consider the calculated member as unbooked.


This is normal behavior.


  • This is not an error, but normal system behavior.
  • The target cell is always created, when at least one of the underlying accounts in the formula contains (booked) data.
  • If you want this system behavior to be changed (or to customize it), you can raise it as a feature enhancement.
