Why is the sum symbol doesn't appeare at the sidebar?

Hi to everyone,

I've setting the column "Importo" as a decimal number and the default summarization as "Sum", but I can't put this column into the matrix's value section (it is valid only for the column and row section) and the sum symbol doesn't appeare at the sidebar

I seem to have the same problem as you and @gvlado .

I have some of these columns in a linechart I created in the past. When I remove them, I'm unable to add them back. If i drag and drop them in the Y-axis box, they just won't stick.

However, if I create a measure =sum(Table[Column]), I can add it no problem.

Have the same poroblem ,and can't apply Quick measure ( Running total)
Manualy making measure (Runing total) is 0K

Interesting is that I see sum simbol in Model view but not in Report view side bar
Is it bug or I am doing something wrong - it makes me crazy!!!

Hard to tell without seeing an example of your data - possible that some of the data is in 'string' type and not a number type? 

Not likely as the column data type is specifically "Decimal number". It's weird.
