In my dataset, I have added an additional column that ouputs True, False or (blank). Upon import, PBI sees it as text and I can't convert it to True/False in either Query Editor or in Data (left-rail).
The end goal is to write a DAX statement that interprets the value of True as "Complete" or False as "Incomplete".
When I add a function like:
Column 2 = IF('KPI Dashboard AD'[(Campaign) Creative Concierge]=True(),"Complete","False"
I get the following result:
DAX comparison operations do not support comparing values of type Text with values of type True/False. Consider using the VALUE or FORMAT function to convert one of the values.
Not sure what to do here...
Thanks for the feedback.
When I change the Data Type I receive this window:
And then I receive an error message that "We can't automatically cvonvert the column to True/False type.
Not sure that is an ideal solution.
Here's a little more context.
This column is newly added. Like columns, from an earlier verision of the dataset, import as True/False - this one doesn't. When I re-import in a NEW .pbix file, it imports with the correct format.
Not sure why I can't convert this one, or why a fresh "Get Data" works properly. Would prefer not to rebuild the dashboards if possible.
Have you resolved your issue? If you have, welcome to share your solution or mark the right reply as answer. More people will benefit from here.
This might be fixed if you go into the query editor and see what automatic transformations Power BI makes when you import them, please eliminate the step and and check if it works fine.
If your data type can't be converted to True/False type, you can change your DAX as follows, it might work correctly.
Column 2 = IF('KPI Dashboard AD'[(Campaign) Creative Concierge]="True","Complete","False" )
Does the column currently say "0" or "1" or "True"/"False"? I believe that it has to be in 0/1 format to change to True/False. What's 0 (True) depends on the question being asked in the column - e.g, if column heading is "Is Current?", then 0 would be true and 1 would be false.
