Calculated Field not available as Summary Number
We're using Beast Mode to take the absolute value of another column, eg `abs(amount)`, and we'd like to use this value to calculate the summary number, but the field is not available in the drop down.
All of the other posts I've read simply say that the summary number has to be an aggregate value, and that doesn't seem to apply to this case, since we have no problem using the original column (amount).
Has anyone else run into this? Is the only solution to move the calculation to a dataflow?
Best Answer

Try this:
SUM(ABS(`Amount`))
ABS by itself doens't combine the numbers into a single value.
