Power Query divide

Hi,

 

I am trying to divide 2 columns in power query editor by adding a new column but when using simple / sign function I will get infinity, n/a etc return when 0 is included and when trying to use DIVIDE function it shows that it´s not recognized.

 

The two columns I need are 

=[#"Rental Value (ERV)"]/[Total Area]

 

Can you please help me so everything divided by 0 returns as blank without errors?

 

Thank you

Hi @matka123499 

Try the following code.

if [Total Area]<>0 then [#"Rental Value (ERV)"]/[Total Area] else null

Output

Hi @matka123499 ,

You can use below query to check for the black values..

 

[Column Name] = IF ( 'YourTable'[Total Area] <> 0,

'YourTable'[Rental Value (ERV)] / 'YourTable'[Total Area],

BLANK () )

I used bellow but get an error Token literal expected.

Column Name] =  IF ( 'Merged Data'[Total Area] <> 0,

'Merged Data'[Rental Value (ERV)] / 'Merged Data'[Total Area],

BLANK () )

Use below. You can use anything else also in place of null

= try [#"Rental Value (ERV)"]/[Total Area] otherwise null

 

I tried this but still getting #Num! where anz of the divided columns is 0

Hi @matka123499 ,

 

try this one

Division Result = IFERROR(DIVIDE('YourTable'[Rental Value (ERV)], 'YourTable'[Total Area]), BLANK())
