Measure divided by another measure doesn't calculate correctly

Hey there,

I've got 2 tables, first: Financials and the other Days

The Financials table has Measure1 to derive $ with certain IF conditions

The Days table has Measure2 for days

I've created Measure3 within Financials table - to get $ per day

Measure3 = DIVIDE([Measure1], SUM(Days[Days]) )


Measure1 and Measure2 show the correct results but Measure3 doesn't show the expected result.

Wait, is Measure 2 a measure or column? Is Days a Date? That would be bad. Perhaps try COUNT.
