Add Text Values

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

Hiya there!! I'm sure this one is deeefinitely not the best way to achieve this, but here's how I add my two text fields with a dollar sign


'$' + CONVERT(VARCHAR, CONVERT(FLOAT, IsNull(STUFF([@field:Text1],1,1,''), 0)) + CONVERT(FLOAT, IsNull(STUFF([@field:Text2],1,1,''), 0)))

I remove the first character, set the DEFAULT value to 0 when it is null, convert them to number, add them, then convert them to text again since I want the result to have a dollar sign too ^_^ 

Hope this helps!
