@stanislawW 

in measures,

you can refer to a column of any table in 2 scenarios :
1.specifying an aggregtated function ( sum, min, max ...) 

2. using iterators ( sumx, filter, minx, maxx, addcolumns, ....  ) 

 

 

in able to understand better , read about row context and filter context . 

 

that is the reason that in your case is only showing measures . 

 

let me know if this helps . 

 

 

If my answer helped sort things out for you, i would appreciate a thumbs up 👍 and mark it as the solution
It makes a difference and might help someone else too. Thanks for spreading the good vibes! 🤠
