Information in this document applies to any platform.


When you configure Pivot / Table View with "Fixed headers with scrolling content" and "Enable alternate styling" options checked, the long text of the hierarchy column displays in multiple rows even though you has unchecked "Wrap Text" option. Currently, this symptom has been identified with IE, Firefox and Chrome ( e.g. IE 11, Firefox 48 and Chrome 53).


Reproducible steps with Sample Sales Lite:

1. Edit the following file and replace [Games] with [419:Games Games Games Games].

2. Login to OBIEE with credential.

3. New > Analysis > Select Subject Area "Sample Sales Lite".

4. Configure the analysis as following:
Selected Columns: "Products"."Products Hierarchy"
Column properties > Style > Wrap Text: uncheck


5. Move to Results tab, and select "Enable alternate styling" in Pivot Table Properties, and then save this analysis.


6. Expand the hierarchy "All Products" > "FunPod", and you will find [419:Games Games Games Games] displays in 3 rows in Pivot Table View.


The issue reproduced with the table view as well.
