Add Text Values


Hi there! 

I have a formula in my table, it doesn't seem to work.

[@field: A] + [@field: B]

So, these are actually text fields.

So the values inside are currencies. $100, something like that. 

How would I be able to add them now? When I use the syntax above, it's only concatenating them.

Hi Taylorswiftloverdover.

I am not sure if this would be the most efficient formula, but this works:

 CONVERT(FLOAT, (Substring([@field:a], 1, 255)))

I don't know, it might be silly. So the substring 1, means that it will be the starting point of the new text, then convert it to number. 

Works for me, but I know there could've been a better formula :D
