Numbers in equations

In a powerbi measure can I use numbers to be multiplied by columns.

 

for example: count(Total[total hired])*(2,000)

 

it is not working as I have it but is there a way to have it work?

Re: Numbers in equations

If there's actually a comma in 2,000, try removing it

using numbers in equations

Can I have a number within a measure that is multiplied by something else:

for example:

 

Count(Total[total hired])*(2,000)

HI @sjensen

 

 

When you say it isn't working.  Are you getting a result that is different from what you are expecting?  Or are you getting an error?
