Duplicate rows when using date as columns in matrix
I have a bizzarre issue that I cannot for the life of me resolve.
I am merely trying to display sales, by state, using date buckets. I have used the standard matrix chart for this. The issue is that the rows for the states are duplicating for most of the states. It seems to be related to the fact that I have appended two tables together using the Append function. If I filter on a field so that only data from one of the two tables would be available, then there is no issue. Also, it is only occurring when the "Order Date" field is used as a column. The issue occurs when I use a date dimension table, or using the date in the actual tables.
Interestingly I don't have the issue when the Order Date is used as a row. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
Many thanks for your reply. It was the trim function that resolved it! There must have been spaces after some of the values. I didn't know of the trim or clean functions... I could have used them in the past on several occasions. I have always only been using replace. Many thanks again!
