    Why show items with no data Disabled if Add data to the Data Model?

    Hi,

    Can anyone explain why "show items with no data" not working if we add data to the data model.

    I am using Slicers and Timeline to filter data to develop dashboard. The target rows must be visible.

    hi Kersplash,

    The function is not available for Add data to the data model.

    FYI - All Data Models are OLAP. You can confirm this by using VBA.

    Assuming that there is only one PivotCache in the workbook. If True is returned. It's OLAP based.
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.
    You can also check by selecting PivotTable and then going to PivotTable ->Analyze ribbon tool and checing If "OLAP Tools" is available or not.
    CUBE function conversion is only available for OLAP based pivots.

    As for OP's question. Try using PivotTable-Options, Display tab, "Show items" option.

    Hi CK76,

    Thanks for clarification on "Show Items with no data" I have found workaround to overcome the issue.

    Create multiple pivot table and filter single item. When slicer/Timeline clicked and the specific data for that range not found, the hidden rows will not move beyond the pivot table header. Thus, the text box mapped to specific cell in pivot table range will display 0.
