I created a column "Math Expression" creating a value from a calculation from other fields. Why this column cannot calculated by views calc?

This is a great question. I've just run into the same issue. I'm guessing the total is calculated by query results and not by views-generated results (if that makes any sense..)

having the same problem here and can confirm that Expression fields are not calculated.

A quite old post, but still:

I did't find any solution for this issue, seems to be exactly like dshields describes, the calculation is performed on the Query result, not the actual view generated result.

A quick workaround though, is to use the Computed Fields module, and generate the calculated result directly in the content type, insted of using the Math expression in Views!

This worked for me, hope it helps someone else!
