Hi, @noble10

According to your description, I can clearly understand your requirement, you can try to create a calculated column like this:

``````Ratio =

var _GCD=GCD([item],[product])

return

DIVIDE([product],_GCD)&":"&DIVIDE([item],_GCD)``````

And you can get what you want, like this:

Thank you very much!

Hi @noble10

Try this:

Measure =
VAR _A =
MAX ( [Production] ) // X in the excel formula
VAR _B =
MAX ( [Item] ) // Y in the excel formula
VAR _GCD =
GCD ( _A_B )
RETURN
_A / _GCD & ":" & _B / _GCD

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately that formula above did not work. Production and Items are measures that I have created. I got the error message below.
