i am trying to create a chart with a linked dimension of two models one coming from remote HANA system and the other from the spreadsheet based source model.

There is this warning that the linked dimension can be used only for filtering and not for blending?

Has anybody come across such situation and any workarounds...

Any limitations around this are always helpful.

Thank you and Appreciate!

Hi Prasanna,

That's a limitation, defined here:

Live Data Connection:

The following features are not supported for data sources that use live data connections:

  • In Stories ...
  • Blending. If one of the two linked models is remote, a warning appears to show that blending is not supported. In a table's build panel, blending is disabled if remote models are selected. However, links between remote models can still be created for use in story filters
