column with numbers not treated as a number in OLAP

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded my PowerBI Desktop report into excel OLAP Cube. I have some columns in table where are only numbers (or nulls), but OLAP cube doesn't consider it as a number, I cannot drop this columns into values in pivot table. Any solution?

 

Thank you in a  advance.

PS. My very first post on this forum 🙂

Hi @krzeczk ,


Behind the PowerBI is a tabular model of analysis services. There are still many differences between it and the multidimensional model(storage engines...). 

Please try analyze in excel and check if the doc is helpful.
