Getting error while writing queries in DAX Studio

Hello Guys, 

 

I have problems with DAX Studio. 

 

For example, if write COUNTA('table'[column]) in DAX Studio, I'm getting an error called "Query (1,1) The expression specified is not valid table expression" 

 

I write many other queries which include CALCULATE() etc. and everyone is working clearly when writing them inside of the Power BI itself. However, I'm getting errors in DAX Studio with the same codes. Can you help me?

Queries in DAX Studio need to return a table, not a scalar value. If you want to run individual measures you need to turn them into a table, e.g.

EVALUATE
{
CALCULATE( SUM( 'Table'[Amount]) )
}

The { } is the table constructor, that turns everything inside the { } into a table.
