Hi Everyone,

I am trying to create a pivot table using the data model.

When I drag a field into the values section, it will only count it.

If I try to change the summarize setting to sum, I get the error message: We can't summarize this field with Sum because it's not a supported calculation for text data types.

Your anticipated help is highly appreciated.

Regards,

Sounds like the data type of the column in the source is set to Text.

Did you refresh the pivot table?
