    Take the value as a measure object and don't take dimension objects in to measures.

    This will avoid the problem.

    practical wise:

    #Multivalue :- this error will occur in 3ways

    1) #multivalue in aggregation

    2) #multivalue in breaks header or footer

    3) #multivalue in section level.

    1:-- the o/p context not include i/p context its situation

    this error occurs.

    Ex: in a report i have year,city dia's & Revenue measure is


    =<revenue> In <year>

    The above condition will to run the query getting revenue

    column #multivalue error occurs.

    solution: cilck the formulabar in view menu

    select the error containg cell, edit the formula to

    write below condition.

    = <revenue> In(<city>,<year>) In <year>

    The above formula will run correct data will appear in the


    Note: the above condition by default it will take agg "sum"



    the variable in the formula no longer exist in the


    Ex:- <product price> * <quantity sold>

    The above condition will run this error will occur.

    Solution:- Click edit dataprovider--> new object will be

    need --> select error cell --> edit formula --> click ok.


    the variable in the formula is incorrect. this

    error will occur.

    solution : go for data menu --> click variable

    select the error containing a cell --> copy the formula in

    edit menu --> paste it in new cell --> go for formula bar in

    view menu --> --> take the first error containg cell

    -->edit the formula --> repeat the above steps.

    #MULTIVALUE occurs when you place a formula that returns more than one

    value in a cell that outputs one value only.

    Example: Multivalue in a cell

    You have a report showing Country, Resort and Revenue and you add a cell

    to the report containing the formula [Revenue] ForEach ([Country]).

    This cell returns #MULTIVALUE because Country has two values in the

    report: u2018USu2019 and u2018Franceu2019.

    One cell cannot display the revenues for both the US and France. Placed

    outside the table, a cell containing revenue can only aggregate the revenues

    All the best,

    1. Multivalue occures only if you are getting more than 1 value in a result and inserting it into one single cell.

    To avoids this jus add some aggregate function before it like sum() or avg().
