## Syntax error

Hi, why this VAR - RETURN function is giving me error? It is correct until the first part "VAR_AVG_TL". The second formula is identical except for the standard deviation instead of the average. Thanks in advance

This the formula:

VAR _Avg_TL =
CALCULATE(
AVERAGE('Merge RPE duration'[TL]),
DATESINPERIOD('Merge RPE duration'[Date],LASTDATE('Merge RPE duration'[Date]),-7,DAY)
)
VAR _SD_TL =
CALCULATE(
STDEV.P('Merge RPE duration'[TL]),
DATESINPERIOD('Merge RPE duration'[Date],LASTDATE('Merge RPE duration'[Date]),-7,DAY)

VAR _Monotony = DIVIDE(_Avg_TL, _SD_TL)

RETURN
_Monotony

This is the error:
The syntax for 'VAR' is incorrect. (DAX(CALCULATE( AVERAGE('Merge RPE duration'[TL]), DATESINPERIOD('Merge RPE duration'[Date],LASTDATE('Merge RPE duration'[Date]),-7,DAY))VAR _SD_TL = CALCULATE( STDEV.P('Merge RPE duration'[TL]), DATESINPERIOD('Merge RPE duration'[Date],LASTDATE('Merge RPE duration'[Date]),-7,DAY)VAR _Monotony = DIVIDE(_Avg_TL, _SD_TL)RETURN _Monotony)).

Hello,

Try this one

VAR _Avg_TL =
CALCULATE(
AVERAGE('Merge RPE duration'[TL]),
DATESINPERIOD('Merge RPE duration'[Date],LASTDATE('Merge RPE duration'[Date]),-7,DAY)
)
VAR _SD_TL =
CALCULATE(
STDEV.P('Merge RPE duration'[TL]),
DATESINPERIOD('Merge RPE duration'[Date],LASTDATE('Merge RPE duration'[Date]),-7,DAY))

VAR _Monotony = DIVIDE(_Avg_TL, _SD_TL)

RETURN
_Monotony
