SUMMARIZECOLUMNS No Longer Accepts Measures After October 2022 Release

Has anyone encountered a new issue in the October 2022 release in which SUMMARIZECOLUMNS used to accept measures in the DAX expressions (the last part of the SUMMARIZECOLUMNS function)? It now only   This worked before the October 2022 release.  This issue exists in teh Power BI service as well.  Does anyone know of a workaround?

Have exactly the same issue, are you running the data from an Analysis Services database?


edited to add print screen of result. If I summarize by something that's not a number I get an "unable to convert a value to the data type requested for table".

Here is an example of what used to work but is no longer working (myMeasure is the measure):
( //group by columns
//filter the table
//calculation expressions
,"MyMeasureCalc",MAX('Table1'[myMeasure]) //this causes a failure because it is a measure. This worked prior to October 2022 release.
