2399121 - Product Category Value Help in Report Does Not Have Any Values


You are using the report Profit Overview By Key Figure and you have enabled the hierarchical display for the field Product Category. However when you add the product category to the selection and open the value help, no product category can be selected.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the report Profit Overview By Key Figure
  2. Click on Add Fields and search for the Product Category (dimension Product)
  3. Drill down into Product Category
  4. Product Category ID, check all 3 checkboxes. This will add the field to the selection area and enable the hierarchy. Click OK.
  5. In the selection area, you will now see the variable Product Category ID (Product Category)
  6. Click on the value help.

There are no values here.


Currently the value help for hierarchy fields is not supported in this report. We are checking if this can be enabled in a future release.


Please use the selection field Product Category (rather than Product Category ID) for variables. It does not have a hierarchy and can be used to select values.
