Calculation Groups

Hi good day.
I have tried to generate a calculated group in a model that I have, but it gives me the following error.
“The query, New Calculation Group, does not have a valid M Expression.”
I am using the tabular editor to generate the calculated group, I saw the video that was published in this post.

Can’t currently create calculated groups in Power BI Desktop?
Thanks for your help.


Not sure if I understand your question. The only way you can create Calculation Groups right now is if you have Power BI Premium. It won’t be ready for Power BI Pro until sometime this summer.


OK thanks
What I understood was that in Power BI Premium it already came as an option to create the calculated groups, as it does when creating a measure.
but then in Power BI Premium you should also use an external program like Tabular editor?
