multivalue error when using the previous() function

I am getting a multivalue error when using the previous() function on a dimension object in the report. I thought that the previous function was supposed to look at the current report and then look at the previous record's contents. How could this possibly give me a multivalue error when the value is clearly output in the previous row? Anyone have any ideas?

By the way, this is a valuable function for the types of reports that I design. The next() function would be even more valuable.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Michael,

Could you please test the following solutions it might help you to resolve the issue.


Use slice and dice to reset all the tables that have #multivalue in it. The only problem with this workaround is they have to do the formatting manually.


Also, test the issue by changing the object to dimension if it is a measure or to measure if it is a dimension.
