Why can't I NOT select on any of my dimensions (and see the sum)?


I have loaded data from an Excel file and, by some manipulation steps, I have tried to make as many fields as possible into dimensions and thus have only two actual data fields.

The current scenario is as follows:

- Dimensions:

  - date

  - goods_receipt_gate

  - category ("lorry" or "container")

- data_fields

  - goods_receipt early shift

  - goods_receipt late shift.

My issue is, I cannot NOT select a gate and thus see the sum of either lorries or containers - not selecting a category would not make sense anyway as there are of course many containers to one lorry.

(I have already created a second, alternative chart with the trellis option simultaneously showing all three gates - but not the sum of them all)

I can't imagine why this is not possible, it should be easy as the figures are in the table ...

Can anyone help me here?

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,
