    I have a calculated field that won't seem to render

    Kristin Lundin

      I have a worksheet in Tableau 8.0.2 and I am trying to count the number of members of 2 different types and display a ratio of one to the other by Canadian Post Codes.

       

      I eventually would use the ratio on a map to show where we have sub-optimal ratios.

      I started by creating 2 calculated fields that simply counts each type (they are identified by an attribute that is on the dimensions) and then do a second calculated field that just divides one by the other.

       

      Unfortunately I can't get the division to calculate at all. If I use the exact same setup but put a + between the fields it calculates as I would expect.

      What am I doing wrong?
