Need help determining projected date of project with Start Date and number of business days

Hello,

 

I am working on a report to project target dates for a project taking into account Days of Development Work, PTO requests, and Days of QA Testing. I have the code to exclude weekends, but I keep getting an error "The result of a conversion or arithmetic operation is either too large or too small".

 

 

Projected Release Priority = 
    VAR CurrentDate = 'Calendar'[Date]

    VAR NextWorkingDates = 
        FILTER(
            ALL('Calendar'),
            'Calendar'[Date] > CurrentDate && 'Calendar'[WeekdayWeekend] = "Weekday" )
    VAR CountofReleasePriorityDays = 'PTO Cushion'[PTO Cushion Value] + 'Days of QA Testing'[Days of QA Testing Value] + 'Product Release Priority Projects'[Days of Dev Work (Release Priority)]
    VAR NextWorkingDays = 
        TOPN(CountofReleasePriorityDays, NextWorkingDates, 'Calendar'[Date], ASC)
    
    VAR Result = MAXX( NextWorkingDays, 'Calendar'[Date])

    RETURN Result

 

 

 

The code works when I replace the "CountofReleasePriorityDays" variable in the "NextWorkingDays" variable with a whole number.

 

 

Projected Release Priority = 
    VAR CurrentDate = 'Calendar'[Date]

    VAR NextWorkingDates = 
        FILTER(
            ALL('Calendar'),
            'Calendar'[Date] > CurrentDate && 'Calendar'[WeekdayWeekend] = "Weekday" )
    VAR CountofReleasePriorityDays = 'PTO Cushion'[PTO Cushion Value] + 'Days of QA Testing'[Days of QA Testing Value] + 'Product Release Priority Projects'[Days of Dev Work (Release Priority)]
    VAR NextWorkingDays = 
        TOPN(64, NextWorkingDates, 'Calendar'[Date], ASC)
    
    VAR Result = MAXX( NextWorkingDays, 'Calendar'[Date])

    RETURN Result

 

 

 

This tells me the problem is my variable "CountofReleasePriorityDays". How do I resolve this issue?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Please check whether there is a error of the format of the columns you used in your formula.

 VAR CountofReleasePriorityDays = 'PTO Cushion'[PTO Cushion Value] + 'Days of QA Testing'[Days of QA Testing Value] + 'Product Release Priority Projects'[Days of Dev Work (Release Priority)]

Hello,

 

Yes, I have checked the format and they are all formatted as whole numbers.
