Type text to Type Number

Hi Team 

 

I'm trying to create a column to show "over 24 hours as text for the below query but keep getting an error of "Cannot convert value 'Over 24 Hours' of type Text to type Number".

 

Can someone help with this? 

IF(DATA[HrsBtwRecievedandAssigned] <= VALUE("0" ), VALUE("0"),
  IF(DATA[HrsBtwRecievedandAssigned] <= VALUE("2" ), VALUE("2"),
  IFDATA[HrsBtwRecievedandAssigned] <= VALUE("24" ), VALUE("24"),
  IF(DATA[HrsBtwRecievedandAssigned] >= VALUE("24" ), VALUE("Over 24 Hours")
  ))))
 
Please and thank you 🙂

Hi @ZachUnger ,

 

Please try.

Column = 
SWITCH(
    TRUE(),
    'DATA'[HrsBtwRecievedandAssigned]<=0,"0",
    'DATA'[HrsBtwRecievedandAssigned]<=2,"2",
    'DATA'[HrsBtwRecievedandAssigned]<=24,"24",
    "Over 24 Hours"
)

In desktop please make sure the final output type is the same.

@ZachUnger help me to help you please.

Post some simple sample data and the code for your column now and i'll have a look

Value "Converts a text string that represents a number to a number" so it's going to error on this : VALUE("Over 24 Hours").

If you want a text column, I think you can remove the VALUE from all return clauses.  That's without testing so see how you get on  

Thanks, doing that then gives me the below error...

Cannot convert value 'Over 24 Hours' of type Text to type Integer.
