Visuals drop-down - missing items

Hi all,


I created a model from multiple data sources (SQL, SharePoint, and Web) when adding any columns to visuals (any type of visual) the aggregation functions (Sum, Average, Min, Max...etc) not shown in the list (see below image). this happens for any data type (Whole number, Decimal, text, ...etc), and even if I change the Summarization to Sum or count still not able to summarize the added field in the visual.



could anyone help me to get the full list like below:


I'm using March 2021 Desktop version

Are you able to share a sample PBIX, one with all sensitive data removed?

Unfortunately no, the PBIX is connected to Private SharePoint and on-premises SQL database that I cannot share.


I just need to be able to see the below choices again

Hard to say without some problem solving to be honest, it sounds like you've already checked, but worth just double-checking that "data type" for that particular column is "Whole Number" or "Decimal Number" in the data tab. 


My next question would be, what measure are you using in your screenshot above? have you tried other measures? Do you have the same issue? 
If you're still not having luck, maybe write a DAX measure for your desired results, 

for example 


yes, I tried the data type for many columns (Whole number, Decimal) but the list still not appearing.

and to overcome that I'm writing a DAX measure to aggregate required columns. and when I want to present the data as a percentage I have to write another Dax measure because "show value as" also not listed
