SSAS Live Connection Formatting Issue

Hello there,


I am have issue in formatting for SSAS measures in live connection. See below screen shot.formatting issue.png

As you can see in screen shot. in Show data I am getting correct formatting from SSAS, but in bar chart, I am seeing data in fractions. This is similar in almost all default Power BI visual except Card, Matrix and table visual in which I can see correct vaule.

Is it a bug in Power BI or is there some problem from SSAS side?

Hi @bhavesh-jadav,


By my test this issue should not caused by live connection in Power BI but the SSAS live connection.


Here is a simialr issue as yours, you can take a look at below thread.
