Hey,

You cannot add Grand Total for discrete columns.

When you try to turn on Column Grand Totals when there is a discrete measure on the Rows shelf, then the grand total for discrete measures will be blank. 
OR 
When you try to turn on Row Grand Totals when there is a discrete measure on the Rows shelf, then the following error occurs: 
Cannot turn on Grand Totals for discrete measures.
