Why doesn't my dimensioned element include a total?

For starters, you'll never see a 'total' dimension value for a report. There is no general way to compute a total across multiple instances of a report. Therefore, we compute totals for metrics only.

Assuming that you're working with a metric:

  1. Did you elect to create a 'Total' dimension value? - Review Dimension Editor
  2. Does the underlying Measure have the proper settings? Review Measure Editor
  3. Did you elect to use the 'Total' dimension value for your metric? Review Metric Editor

1. Review the Dimension Editor

2. Review the Measure Editor
