variable confusion = or not


I have a number of variables created which I reference in a pivot, in my expression that references the variables it shows blank unless I filter 1 record in the dimension used in the pivot and change the variable to have an = before it. 

I believe it is something to do with aggregation so in the variable I have then placed an aggr and aggregated it based on the dimension in question however this doesnt work.

can someone please help

at least paste the chart expression

are the variables simply a value or they are calculated by expresion?

You may define the variable without = sign before it. e.g sum(Filed1) / Sum(Fileld_2).  In chart expression use the variable as $(variable_name).
