2687968 - When using a combination Column and Line chart, if you select a dimension you cannot select the same dimension in the Color feed in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).

Symptom

When using a combination Column and Line chart, if you select a dimension you cannot select the same dimension in the Color feed in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Cause

Limitation

Resolution

For some chart types, you can use the same dimension for both category and Color feeds. This can be useful if you want to hide the legend for a chart, but still want to see the information that the legend would provide. For example, you can display total sales (measure dimension) by employee (category dimension), and add employee to the color dimension as well.

You can apply the same dimension to both category and color feeds in the following chart types:

  • Bar/Column
  • Box Plot
  • Bubble, Scatterplot, and Cluster Bubble
  • Marimekko

When you switch to a chart type that does not support using the same dimension twice, one of the dimension options will be dropped.
