## How to sum the results of substraction between two columns?

Hello!

I have two columns named 'Created' and 'Terminated date'. I have done the substraction as below :

[Change ID],
Date(floor([Created])) AS Created_Date,
Month(Date(floor([Created]))) as Created_Month,
Dual('Q'&Ceil(Month(Date(floor([Created])))/3),Ceil(Month(Date(floor([Created])))/3)) as Created_Quarter,
[Termination date] - Date(floor([Created])) AS Termination_timelapse

Resident main;

Now, I want to sum the values in 'Termination_timelapse' and show that result through bar chart.

Any idea how to do that?

Thank you very much!

Just use Sum(Termination_timelapse) as an expression and use the required dimension(s).

I would think this way?

Num([Termination date]) - Num(Date(floor([Created]))) AS Termination_timelapse

Then Create Bar Chart

Dimension : Termination_timelapse

Expression : Sum(Termination_timelapse)
