I can't retrieve my metric in other blocks

Hello everyone,

I have created a metric to retrieve the current version i am working on, and it is based on my dimension Version.


But when I try to retrive it in other blocks (like in a transaction list) I have this error : Dimension error: the Dimensions of the formula and the current Metric structure are not compatible. Can't implicitly remove Version Dimension(s) on non numerical Metric.


how can I solve this issue?

Thanks in advance

The error indicates that the structure of your formula and your block is not aligned and that you have to “remove Version Dimension”.

You can try:

[remove: Version]

Then it should return another error message asking to tell Pigment which methodology should be used to modify the data.

So you’ll have to define which methodology suits you best:

the most used are:

[remove firstnonblank: Version]

[remove lastnonblank: Version]


You can find the list of all methodologies here:



Hope that helps.
