You're trying to create a Custom CDS view with calculated columns but CDS view gives you some warning messages and because of that you're not able to Publish CDS view.

Warning message: Field XXXX ignored: Data type XXXX not allowed for characteristic

It is mandatory to set an aggregation for the those fields.
The reason is that the analytical engine performs a check for such fields. According to the check, if an aggregation(SUM ,MAX OR * is not provided then the analytical engine throws an error 'Data type * not allowed for characteristic' when publishing the view . This means that the data type is not supported for a characteristic and the field will be ignored.


To fix the issue, please setup aggregation for the fields per your requirement.
