Is it just me or are math functions completely broken?

I'll just dive right into the example. Why is "1 + 1" equal to 182?

I get wrong answers for other operations too:

 

"1 / 2"

DIVIDE() gives the same result.

In your first example you are creating a column that equals "2" to all of your rows, then aggregating by something. I'm going to guess you have 91 rows of data either filtered or in your dataset to get  182.

Column or Measure?

Column.

 

This brings up another issue which is that I can't create measures. None of my columns are available when creating a measure.

Ooohhh... yeeaaahh... that makes sense!

 

Any idea on the measure issue I mentioned?

That depends on what your data model looks like. I'm going to assume you've got multiple tables in play if some column names aren't autocompleting when creating a Measure, there's probably something funky in how the tables are related and/or you're working on the wrong side of a many:1 relationship.

Turns out I was just doing it wrong (again). I was not using a function like SUM() in my attempt at making a measure.
