How to create a report where one field is an integer (only available as a Sum)

This seems a simple enough requirement, but I cannot see what is wrong. I have done a similar thing with PowerPivot, but am struggling here.

 

I have a table that lists a number of Bugs in a number of Products. Each bug has a unique ID (bug_id), and a Product ID (product_id). the product_id field has a relationship with another table allowing this ID to translate to a meaningful name. The problem though, is that of the available fields in the Bugs table, bug_id is only available as a Sum.
I want a report that looks like this;

Product #1    12345

                      13432

                      14562

Product #2     11763

                       11234

 

This seems such a simple requirement, so I am clearly missing something obvious. Can someone point me to what I am missing or a tutorial please.

Hi @LGXSteve,

 

It seems that the bug_id field data type was Number, which visual did you used to display bug_id field? If you used table visual, you can set the "Don't summarize", then bug_id will not be aggregated.

If issue persists, it would be better if you could share some screenshots to describe the issue clearly.

This is a duplicate post - apologies. My original post seemed to fail, but has now appeared.

Hi @LGXSteve 

 

I may be wrong, but it sounds like Bug_id is defined as a measure, not as a column.

Re: How to create a report where one field is an integer (only available as a Sum)

As noted further above mysefl, I inadvertently posted this twice (thinking my first post had gone astray). I have now found how to set a field as 'Do Not Summarize', and this indeed fixes the problem.

Thanks to everyone.
