pls try this

if 
Number.IsNaN([Sales]) or [Sales]<0
      then 0 else [Sales]

It didnt work for me.

 

I have a table with 5 columns spooled from a source. So i added "sales" Column to the table.  

 

Sales Column is the result of the calculation of ColumnA divided by 2

 

So what I want is, how to turn "Nah" and all the negative numbers(See Screenshot below) to Zero (0)

Hi,

Assuming the Sales column was created in the Query Editor AND you want to get the desired result in the Query Editor itself, write this Custom column formula in the Query Editor

=if [Sales]="NaH" or [Sales]<0 then 0 else [Sales]

If you want to get the resutl in the Data Model, then write this calculated column formula

=if(or(Data[Sales]="Nah",Data[Sales]=0),0,Data[Sales])

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Does this calculated column formula work?

Hi,

Share the download link of the PBI file with the formula already written (the one that yields an error).
