## Convert sting to integer Calculate

Hi

I have a year column that I want to keep it as string.

I am currently using this DAX that works perfectly well.

CY_Family_Sales = CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table_1[Sales]),
FILTER ( 'Table_1', 'Table_1'[Fiscal_Year] = "2020" ),
FILTER ( 'Table_1', 'Table_1'[loyalty_flag] = "CARD" ) )

I want to change year to integer.

I have tried this: FILTER ( 'Table_1', 'Table_1'[Fiscal_Year] = MAX((INT('TABLE_1'[Fiscal_Year]))-1) )

I have tried this: FILTER ( 'Table_1', 'Table_1'[Fiscal_Year] = MAX((Value('TABLE_1'[Fiscal_Year]))-1) )

but no luck.

Can someone give me a direction?

Thanks,

Sam

Hi @samnaw ,

We should use max function first, then use value function to convert it to whole number, please try the following measure:

``````LY_Family_Sales =
VAR LY =
VALUE ( MAX ( 'Table_1'[Fiscal_Year] ) ) - 1
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table_1[Sales] ),
'Table_1'[Fiscal_Year] = "" & LY,
'Table_1'[loyalty_flag] = "CARD"
)``````

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Hi,

First, why you are keeping the Year column in STRING..?, change the Year column to INT/Whole Number,

If you want to keep that column to STRING,

try using these 2 DAX formulas

1. FORMAT( "2020", "General Number")

2. Value("2020")

Hope this will help..

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks & Regards,
