how to trim space in data model

Hi,

 

I used combinedvalues as shown. 

 

I want to trim the space in order to get numbers instead of text.

 

I couldn't do it in power query because the column is not showing. Is there other ways to combine the values not as text.

 

Thanks

Hi @tksnota ,

You can use the following DAX expression to create a column.

Column3 = IF(ISBLANK([Column2]),[Column1],[Column2])

Hi,

 

The convert function works. But my other issue now is how to merge the data into one column as shown in the table view  without using power query

Hi @tksnota ,

 The combinevalues function is expecting text fields. You can use the CONVERT function on numeric fields within the combinevalues function to change numeric fields into text fields. Like CONVERT(textfield, DOUBLE).
