    First, are you on SP3?

    Are you following the steps outlined in the SAP Help? Select the first operand, select control key, and then select second field? It is working for me.

    Hi Jing Zhang,

    It is working fine for me.

    Can you reset your initial view once and do calculation again?

    • Hi Jing Zhang,

      Sorry for the late reply. I tried to recreate the error but i couldn't.

      I think there must be a collision in aggregation of values between two keyfigures.

      Can try on some other datasources with different keyfigures?

      But if you are getting this error for all the keyfigures then there must be a problem in your design studio application on handling the function.

      Can you try the same in some other computer?
