Change exisiting text type to decimal

Hi everybody

 

I am a beginner of powerbi and what to set up a new report in our company. I know that you can change the type of columns but I haven't figure out, how to have an exisiting column as type "text" and change it to type "decimal" with two characters after comma. 

 

Just to make it a little bit clearer:

1. Is 04909 ---> should be 49,09

2. IS 04906 ---> should be 49,06

3. Is 04711 ---> should be 47,11

4. .....

 

I tried also to transfer at first step to whole number and then to decimal. --> Did not work

 

As I want to change this in the query Editor and not in the Excel (This is the source of the column).

Can u maybe help me out? 🙂

 

Thank guys. 

 

Br, mincii

What happened?

This is the right way to do it.

Change type to number or decimal.

It looks like you want to divide by 100 and use a comma as a decimal separator so try that.
