Columns not recognized when calculating Measure

Hi,

I am unable to calculate a Measure in my table, the formula bar does not present me with a dropdown of my columns and when i type them in manually i recieve an error saying that the columns cannot be determined. Yet this is not the case for calculated columns where it works fine, even if i copy the same formula for the Measure.

Is there anything I might be missing?

OK, i quickly figured it out just after posting this.

I needed to enter an aggregation function in the formula.

In my case i wanted to divide one column by another, so i did sum(column1)/sum(column2) and it works.

 

Cheers
