New Column is not showing in the available fields

Hello, my table is from a sql server database. After importing, I added a custom column %Returned=TotalReturned/TotalIssued then unpivot other columns. After I close and apply, the new custom column is not showing in the available fields for dashboard. Can you please help me figure this out? Thank you

Hello @MA14 ,


can you post the Power Query code and maybe a few screenshots?

Otherwise can you share the file? That makes it easier to help you.


Thank you and best regards


I realized the %Returned has a different data type compared to the other columns so I just brought the table again from the sql server database and added the %Returned to this 2nd table and it worked.
