Issue occurs when trying to apply conditional formatting on a column using a condition "column is NULL" in a UNION report.
Example and Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Bi Sample Apps
New > analysis > A - Sample Sales
"A - Sample Sales"."Sales Person"."E8 Manager Number" s_1,
"A - Sample Sales"."Sales Person"."E9 Manager Name" s_2,
FROM "A - Sample Sales"
3. Add a filter ("Time"."T00 Calendar Date" = date '2008-01-03')
4. This query will return one row with NULL values.
5. In criteria select "E9 Manager Name" and go to column properties >conditional format
Column= Column Column
Operator= is NULL
Pick a format (like a background color)
6. Go to results
7. The conditional format is not applied on the cell with a NULL value
Note: If you create an expression testing the values, the NULL value is verified.
CASE WHEN "A - Sample Sales"."Sales Person"."E9 Manager Name" is NULL
THEN 'THis is NULL' ELSE "A - Sample Sales"."Sales Person"."E9 Manager Name"
