The idea behind this is to allow the user to see the formula used to create the measure. This in turn would allow them to better understand how / what a measure is calculating.

Currently many clients ask 'How is this being calculated?'
We then need to explain (for example) that Measure = (Total Budget - Total Actuals) / Total Budget

If we have an option to turn on a 'help' feature which added the formula as a tool-tip this would help users to understand calculations.

This perhaps is not the best way to achieve this result but that is the end result wanted.
