I am running into a problem with using math.
I have multiple calculated fields (all are count or countd) across two data sources.
The data sources are blending fine and I can put each discrete calculated field on the view.
I can't post the data due to it being Emergency call data but here's the relevant setup.
I am counting calls by 911 center and day.
The calculated field is basically a count(value).
The calculations work fabulously when I put each data sources calculated field in the measure values but I end up with two rows of call counts.
one for data source 1 and 1 for data source 2.
I thought I could be clever and make another calculated field [calculation1]+[calculation2]
unfortunately when I do this, the only numbers which show up are calculation2,
Both Calculation1 and calculation2 yield integer results.
I am not sure why this isn't working.
I figured out how to get it to work.
The nature of the beast is that while my data is blended on 911 call center and date, calculation2 has no values before certain dates while calculation1 does
I still don't understand why it just doesn't assume 0 when one side of the blended data is missing.
