2606605 - Formatting of a row or an entire column of a table widget is not possible in SAP Analytics Cloud


  • Formatting of selected cells seems not possible after highlighting an entire column or row in a table widget.
  • The cell related styling options (Merge, Fill, Borders, Font size, Font colors) are greyed out.
  • The options are not active after selecting cells by double click on the first cell of the row/column, however SAP Analytic Cloud shows the possible options for "Selected Cells" in the Styling pane.
  • Formatting cells is only available when highlighting them by holding down the left click and moving the cursor to a certain direction.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2018.2.2

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a table in SAP Analytics Cloud.
  2. Click on the first cell of a particular row or a column.
  3. Move the mouse until your row or column will be highlighted.
  4. Then left click on the cell (when row is highlighted like above).
  5. Observe that the entire row or column will be selected but several formatting options are not available.


This is a known limitation in SAP Analytics Cloud currently.


Development team is working on enhancing table formatting for the future. It will be planned to be released in Q1/Q2 of 2018.
