Adding a measure to a table visual eliminates rows

Hi. I'm not even sure of how to ask this question, so please be patient with me. I have a table visual consisting of three columns: Code, Account Number and Client ID. I get 21 rows on the visual. the second I add a measure as the third column, all of a sudden, the rows get reduced to 13!! I'm not at all familiar with what might be happening here. Has anyone run into a situation like this? I know you might ask me for a sample file, but this is based on live connection to SSAS tabular model, and the relationships are complex. I just wanted a high-level idea as to what might be happeneing. I understand if the measure produces incorrect values; but for it to somehow shrink the number of rows in the existing visual, that is alien to me.

 

So, basically, has anyone experienced a similar situation where adding a measure to a table visual causes it to shrink? Do you know of an article or some reading that might be related to this?

Thanks.

Hi @yasbos 
Reduding of rows happens because of filter context.

It works with the same logic as pivot at Excel.
I suppose that your measure has some aggregation effect / for some rows that return no value.
There are a few steps you can apply to see all rows (my be just one of them)
1. Select the option of "don't summarize " for your categorical columns
2. To check on the option "Show values with no data"

3. add "+0" to your measure.

Unfortunately, I am out of the limit of pictures that I can add to the discussions so I put the screenshots to PowerPoint you can download them from here: Link to the file

Thanks so much, @Ritaf1983  you are awesome. That's all that I needed. I just needed some validation that this is normal and what type of circumstances can cause it. Now, I can review my measure (which does have aggregations, indeed) in light of your insights. Thanks again.

Happy to help 🙂
