Applying filters to custom metrics

I have created a custom metric calculation using another custom metric and a default metric both of which have 1 or more filters applied and I am getting the "Configuration Error" message. 

The metrics I am using are:

--Custom: "Gross Cost" using the adwords cost and applying our commission percentage to reflect the total cost to client; I have also applied a filter to see only a specific campaign 

--Default: "Conversions" using adwords conversions with a filter for specific campaign and another filter for specific type of conversion

--> Using the metrics above, I am trying to calculate cost per conversion, but that is where I am receiving the error. 

Both the Gross Cost and Conversion metrics are calculating correctly with the filters applied; it is once I try to use them both in a new metric that I receive the error. 

Any idea why this is happening?!
