Is it possible to convert IF + Isblank code to COALESCE

 

 

 

 

VAR result =
    IF (
        ISBLANK ( [col1] ),
        BLANK (),
        IF (
            ISBLANK ( [col2] ),
            BLANK (),
            ( DIVIDE ( [col1], [col2] ) - 1 )
        )
    )
RETURN
    result

 

 

 

 Does anyone know how to convert code using Coalesce ?

Thanks for your support.

Here's an example of how the code can be converted using Coalesce:

VAR result = DIVIDE ( COALESCE ( [col1], BLANK() ), COALESCE ( [col2], BLANK() ) ) - 1 RETURN result

Coalesce is a function that returns the first non-blank value in a list of expressions. In this case, it's being used to replace the ISBLANK function. The result will be the same as the original code but using a different function.
