    Calculated field does not wish to calculate

    Anne-Sophie B

      Hi there, I am working on Tableau Desktop 10.1.3


      I have a field called "budget" and a field called "number of records"

      I have created a calculated field called "Budget per sale", calculated as follow:

      Budget/number of records


      However when I place my calculated field on the shelf, the numbers that display is budget. if I place side by side on the shelf "budget" and "Budget per sale", the same numbers display.

      When I change the operation to calculate Nb of records / Budget it seems to work, however I do need Budget per sale.


      Any help welcome.
