Error: Comparison operations don't support comparing values type Text with Values of Type Number

Hi, 

 

I'm new to DAX and need some help, I'm creating a measure in a tabular cube in SSAS. I need to retreive the LastYearLastWeek data from x column:

 

LastYearLastWeek:= CALCULATE([x], FILTER(ALL(Time), Time[WeekNumber] = SELECTEDVALUE(Time[WeekNumber]) -1 && Time[Year] = SELECTEDVALUE(Time[Year])-1))

 

But I get this error in the syntax: comparison operations don't support comparing values type Text with Values of Type Number. Considering using VALUE or FORMAT functions to convert one of the values. 

 

Fields used: WeekNumber and Year from Time table are whole numbers.

 

It doesn't really make sense to me, any tips on how to fix it? 

 

Also maybe there is a better way to get LastWeekLastYear, do you know of any? 

 

Thanks

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Since the error pointed out that it was a data type issue, could you double check the data type of Time[WeekNumber] and Time[Year] columns? Or, if the expression works with "VALUE" function, the data type of the two columns is indeed text.

 

LastYearLastWeek :=
CALCULATE (
[x],
FILTER (
ALL ( Time ),
Time[WeekNumber]
= VALUE ( SELECTEDVALUE ( Time[WeekNumber] ) ) - 1
&& Time[Year]
= VALUE ( SELECTEDVALUE ( Time[Year] ) ) - 1
)
)

 

Then, is [x] a column or a measure? If it is a column, it may need to use SUM, MAX, etc, functions with [x].

 

 

 

Best Regards,
