Adding a column with no aggregation

Hi Sisense community ๐Ÿ™‚ I have imported an excel sheet into my elasticube data model and would like to display the columns in the excel sheet in a pivot table in a widget. I do not want to aggregate the values from the Excel sheet using SUM() or COUNT(), but I get an error if I do not do an aggregation. 

Attached are screenshots - the column from the excel sheet is how I would like the data to appear on Sisense pivot table, but the column I am seeing on Sisense has different values as it uses the SUM() function.

Hi @amelia , 

Have you tried adding it under 'Rows' panel?

Hi Hari, I tried that and it wouldn't work, since the rows that are missing in the Excel sheet will not show up (The data from the excel sheet only starts April 2022, but the rest of the data is from 2020 onwards)  if I do this - is there any workaround for this that you would recommend?

Can you try Max() or Min() aggregators?

If its not giving expected result, can you show sample data from excel and the expected result?

Sure, here is a screenshot of the sample data in Excel:

I would like the column called 'Target' to show up as is, in the pivot table widget. I plan to add a column called 'Target' in the pivot table with these exact values, so I do not want to aggregate them.

Just to make sure if I understood the problem correctly:

There are 2 connected tables. One contains data back from 2020 and the another table, which is created from excel, contains data from 2022.

You need to create a pivot that contains all dates (from 2020) and display corresponding 'Target' (So if date is 2020 'Target' would be blank and if date is 2022 it would show the target value)

Screenshot above shows 'Weeks in calendar_date' instead of 'Days in calendar_date'. Is that expected?

Hi Hakim, thanks for your help ๐Ÿ™‚ I managed to solve it, appreciate it!
