Hi all,

 

I'm Kate and I experience problems with creating calculated fields in Google Data Studio. Even simple formula returns an error:

Does anyone have any ideas why it happens?

Thanks to all in advance

You do not need to use the "=".

Additionally, you need a function in your formula to create a new field. 

Example: Sum(Sessions) or Sessions/1 or Sessions * 1
