Variables are not compatible

Hi guys

Please does anyone know how to solve a problem where you have two queries from the same Universe in the same report but you then want to create a varaible in the report using objects from the two queries.
This just gives - Variables are not compatible


[Edit: corrected spelling of compartible to compatible in heading and in this first post, to help with future searches. AMC]

You need to links dimensions from both the queries

Is you variable build on dimensions or measures form two queries??

What is the exact formula for your new variable you are trying to build?

Yes it is. The two queries are from the same universe
