Hi  @alisonpappas 

According to the error prompt, you should convert string to value before calculation. Try function such like Value().


If this doesn't help, please provide more details, so that we can work on,

(1) a sample file, you can replace raw data with bogus data to protect your privacy.

(2) or provide some sample data that fully covers your issue/question

(3) give your expected result based on the sample you provide

Kindly note: Please ensure the data in sample is concise and representative.



Best Regards,
