Hi There,

You should understand the difference between the Measure and Calculated Column. The Calculation you are trying to achieve is more suitable for calculated column and that's why showing an error for the measure calculation.

For measure, You should try SUMX.

measure:=SUMX(list,list[TURNOVER]*5)

Hi there,

Having a similar issue but not quite the same. I am trying to make a calculated column, rather than a measure and I get the following error:

"A single value for column 'Number of Working Days per Year (incl. BH)' in table 'Dim_HR People_CurrentHeads' cannot be determined. This can happen when a measure formula refers to a column that contains many values without specifying an aggregation such as min, max, count, or sum to get a single result."

The formula is:

Total Working Days per Year (excl. BH) = CALCULATE('Dim_HR People_CurrentHeads'[Number of Working Days per Year (incl. BH)] - Dim_Dates[Total Bank Holidays])

Where Number of Working Days per Year (incl. BH) is a calculated column and Total Bank Holidays is a calculated measure.

Thanks!

I am getting same error here, Pls help.

1 star Count = if(Query1[QID:1109-QoS5pt]="1",1,0)

The column QID contains numbers 1 to 5

Hi,

Try this

1 star Count = if(Query1[QID:1109-QoS5pt]=1,1,0)

Hi,

That formula should be written as a calculated column formula (not as a measure).  If it still does not work, then describe the question, share some data and also show the expected result.

Oh right, now I realize why I could use this formula before, I totally forgot I used CalculatedColumn. Thanks a lot for reminding me.
