Calculated members not showing in Power BI Desktop

Hi

 

I know similar posts have been made, but they don't seem to answer my question.....

 

I have a dimension with an attribute (not key attribute) Margin.  The Margin attribute has a couple of Calculated Members which are not siblings of the All member and the attribute is not a parent child attribute.

 

From this document , I expected them to be displayed in the Margin attribute hierarchy when I bring it onto the Power BI report.  

 

From Document

Multidimensional models expose calculated members on attribute hierarchies as values of a column. There are a few additional options and constraints while exposing this type of calculated member:

  • Dimension attribute can have an optional UnknownMember
  • An attribute containing calculated members cannot be the key attribute of the dimension, unless it is the only attribute of the dimension
  • An attribute containing calculated members cannot be a parent-child attribute

 

What am I missing ?

 

What does 'Multidimensional models expose calculated members on attribute hierarchies as values of a column.' mean ?  Am I looking in the wrong place ?

 

Sorry if silly questions, excuse the newbie.

Re: Calculated members not showing in Power BI Desktop

Hi @bjarvis100,

 

Based on test, power bi seems not support calculated members who contains multiple attributes or has hierarchy members.

Dimension Calculated Members (must be a single real member when the dimension has more than one attribute, it cannot be the key attribute of the dimension unless it is the only attribute, and it cannot be a parent-child attribute)

 

Maybe you can take a look at below link:

BUG Calculated member not appearing in the members list in tables or filters.
