Reproducing the Issue

Open a story


  • Issue occurs due to an error in the account (measure) dimension
  • If a user enters a hard return in the formula column for a measure the system attempts to validate the formula on story opening and fails due to null value


This issue is fixed in version 2020.20.5

To resolve this problem for any existing model prior the the fix version the problem measure needs to be identified and the hard return removed from the formula column.

One way to do this is to copy all members to Excel. the measures with the hard returns will show as double height compared to the other members and can be easily identified.
