3057677 - Story Table shows hash sign "#" instead of blank in SAP Analytics Cloud?


  • When an empty value is displayed in a table, instead of showing blank it displays the hash sign "#" in  SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).
  • There doesn't seem to be an option to change this behaviour.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud


This is designed behaviour or the SAC table and currently there is no option to change the behaviour.

To work around this a calculated dimension can be added to the table that will display blank when there is not data. For example with a model called "Person" with a dimension "Eye_Colour" a formula that will display as blank instead of "#" can be written like this:

IF( [d/"Person":Eye_Colour].[p/ID]="#"," ",[d/"Person":Eye_Colour] )
