Dashboard designer chart always get the measure instead of the calculated measure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    I have a problem with my chart in the dashboard designer.

    I have a measure (measure 1) and a dimension (dimension1). I have to do a calculated measure for measure1 because I needed to apply a customized YTD to measure1.

    So in my chart I am using the calculated measure 1 and the dimension1. But when I apply a filter connection (it's a dimension2 filter), the chart is always taking the measure 1 instead of the calculated measure 1. (I dragged the calculated measure 1 into the chart).

    Any idea of why the Dashboard designer is doing the above? 

    Thanks in advance and best regards,

  • Not completely following this.  Have you tried including both measures in the chart?  Can you provide the MDX that is included in the Chart, because you shouldn't have any issues referencing the calculated measure. 

    Maybe you need to include a reference to your Date (Time) dimension so that the calculated measure actually gets a reference to the CurrentMember which you are probably referencing so that the calculation will actually work.
