The following behaviour occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) when attempting to display Calendar Month Dimension Members with Unbooked Data:

  • When the Story is first created and the "Show Unbooked Data" option is selected, all Calendar Months in a Year are displayed on a Chart (including those which have no booked data)
  • When the Story is saved and re-opened, or the Chart is duplicated, the Unbooked Dimension members are removed from the Chart and cannot be readded even after selecting the "Show Unbooked Data" option on the Dimension


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2021.7.x
  • Live Data Connection to SAP BW

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Story based on a Model based on a Live Data Connection to SAP BW
  2. Add a Dimension which contains Unbooked Dimension Members
  3. Add a Measure
  4. Observe that when it is first created, all Dimension Members are shown (eg. all Calendar Months)
  5. Save the Story
