Calculated field doesn't respect parentheses in arithmetic expressions?
Hello - I'm new to Domo but observing very unusual behaviour on a calculated field.
When I define the expression
It evaluates to 19 (i.e. 10*2 - 1), not 10 as expected!
Bizarrely my colleague on the same instance is unable to reproduce the same.
As a workaround, I've been wrapping bracketed expressions in a POWER function i.e.
evaluates to 10 as expected.
Has anyone experienced this before? If so, how can I resolve?
Thanks in advance
Can you post your exact formula you're using? Also are you doing this in a beast mode or in a magic ETL formula tile?**Was this post helpful? Click Agree or Like below**

Thanks both, for some reason I can't attach a screenshot to prove it, but the calculated formula I'm using to test is literally
Which evaluates to 19 while 10*POWER(2-1,1) evaluates to 10 as expected.
This is for a DataSet view which I created in Analyser. I'm adding the above as a Calculated Column in the data tab (not a Beast Mode calculation in the visualiser as it looks like @amehdad assumes)0
I was able to recreate your problem now that you describe that you are doing it when using the dataset view option in Analyzer. That view in Analyzer is new, and I believe you found a bug. I would submit a ticket to [email protected] and explain your bug. They will send it to the engineers to get it fixed.
In the meantime, I would try and work around it by using a beast mode.**Check out my Domo Tips & Tricks Videos
