Hello,

If a created a new calculate fied caled 'Data Calculated' can I use is for another calculation?

    The only way to reference a calculated field would be to either use the entire original Beast Mode in the next calculated field (referenced variables are not currently supported).

     

    The other option would be to build the first calculated column into the ETL process and have it calculted beforehand and then reference the new column name.

     

    Hope one of those helps solve your issue,

  • Hi, how does one view the entire origional Beast Mode?

  • Hi, how does one find the enitre origional Best Mode? When I open Beast Mode it opens a blank workspace.

     

    Thanks!
