Can't fix Error - "Cannot convert value '003.101.170052' of type Text to type True/False.


 I've been able to use this same type of formula with the same table to sum filtering on different columns getting the expected result. When I try to filter using CostCenterID it doesn't work. Can someone explain why?

@ZLV , all the columns in calculate after sum() are the filter. means they should return true and false.

What are you trying to do here



I am trying to sum the BudgetHours column in MfgActualsView based on the columns listed after the sum function. The MfgActualsView table is daily data and I would like to summarize it as monthly data in this new table. If I remove the CostCenterID column I don't get the error but then the data is not summarized the way I would like.
