    Error on server: The formula must be an aggregate calculation or refer only to this field

    Guy De Backer

      Our workbook developers have a datasource that they exported to Tableau server. In this datasource they noticed that if they try to create a filter with a condition by fomula on a date object using parameters that they get the error "The formula must be an aggregate calculation or refer only to this field".

      This same construct does work if the datasource is put locally (=local copy of the datasource) on the workstation. What is causing this?

       

      You can find an example workbook and datasource in the attachment (the filter on the Datum object only works with local data).
