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,

Mohammed Adnan
