Division of two variables


i am facing an issue trying to divide the values of two variables.

I have created a table with Measures for calculations and i initiate a number of variables.

Because i am using different lists i have a common LookUp field and they are connected.

At some point i have to divide two values. It does not seem to work (while adding the values worked for example)

I have tried Divide(val10a,val1) and even val10a/val1.


VAR Val1 = Calculate(Sum(MyList[OS]),Filter......)

VAR Val10a = COUNTROWS(FILTER(MyOtherList,List[CategoryID]=1.......)


I have tried to write Val10a as Calculate(COUNTROWS(....

or VALUE(COUNTRows(...


For some reason i am getting blank or the calculation is not happening . Any ideas?

Hello there @marial16 ! Are you using the DIVIDE() function? If so, how are you hanling errors?

yes i tried using the devide function but to see if it works i set the values to be 


VAR Val1 =2 

VAR Val10a = 2


which would have to return 1 ,but it does not.

1, If(ISNUMBER(Val), Val , 0,
