PowerView Multiples : Greyed out => not available


While giving a Training related to PowerView I couldn't explain the option Multiples, because they were greyed out.

When selecting fields, Power View itself decides to place the field in the multiples. That I can accept, but it was impossible to move the field, delete the field, ar place another field in the option

Remark: it was op the classroom PC not on my personal PC


Someone got an idea?

It depends on the data and how the data is structured. Multiples cannot be shown from any type of data set. I'll try to come up with a few examples. 


Here is a screenshot:

In short, if you can build a matrix with multiple rows and multiple columns from the data, then you can use charts with multiples, too. 



I understand your answer ... but the data is well organised.


I create the exercise on 2 laptops with the same version of Office 2016

* Laptop 1 (Personal PC) : multiples available ... every option is available

* Laptop 2 (Training PC) : multiples available ... Power View put a selected field in the multiple but the field can not be moved, deleted because they are greyed out.
