## replacing hypen with zero in table

Hi,

i have an expression where i am formatting column values in table. Now i need to replace hypen with 0, if value is null

Num(if(Metrics='Invitations',if(Sign(\$(=Count({\$<batch={'23','34'}>}invitation_id))=-1,0,\$(=Count({\$<batch={'23','34'}>}invitation_id)),

if(Metrics='Delivered',Alt(\$=(Sum(delivered)),0),

if(Metrics='Completions Rate',Sum(completions)/

Sum(delivered),))), if(Metrics='Completions Rate','#,##0.0%', '#,##0'))

How could i do this?

## Re: replacing hypen with zero in table

Hi guys,

first of all, i have to say sorry, because my expressions in query were not exactly same as i had posted and working expression.

i figured it out, why i was having this issue, the reason is

1.) i was using Dollar-sign Expansion with expression.

2.)If i need to use alt() or RangeMax() or sign() , i should not use Dollar-sign Expansion with expression, inside these(alt() or RangeMax() or sign()) functions.This may lead to undefined result, which was causing me to give hypen.

3.)If in single row, your expresion contains alt() or sign() function with dollar expansion, then all rows in that particular column can result as not valid, which will be shown in hypen symbol

My expression was

if(Sign(\$(=Count({\$<batch={'23','34'}>}invitation_id))=-1,0,\$(=Count({\$<batch={'23','34'}>}invitation_id))

Alt(\$=(Sum(delivered)),0)

In my above expression i should remove ' \$(= '  Dollar expansion symbol, then you get the result.

Thankyou all of you, to answering or giving hint for  my query.

Hi,

its not a chart, it is table i need to do it in expression by putting condition.

If Sum(delivered) = 0, then Completions Rate= '-' (Any number / 0 will be shown as '-')

I think we need to address this as well.

## Re: replacing hypen with zero in table

Try

Alt(Num(if(Metrics='Invitations',Count(invitation_id),

if(Metrics='Delivered',Sum(delivered),

if(Metrics='Completions Rate',Sum(completions)/

Sum(delivered),))), if(Metrics='Completions Rate','#,##0.0%', '#,##0')),0)

## Re: replacing hypen with zero in table

A solution could be to use: RangeMax of RangeMin

RangeMax(0,

Num(if(Metrics='Invitations',Count(invitation_id),

if(Metrics='Delivered',Sum(delivered),

if(Metrics='Completions Rate',Sum(completions)/

Sum(delivered),))), if(Metrics='Completions Rate','#,##0.0%', '#,##0'))

## Re: replacing hypen with zero in table

Hi,

using of alt will work fine in text box, but not working in table.Why is it happening so MVP

## Re: replacing hypen with zero in table

So, Where is this expression you are using

Num(if(Metrics='Invitations',Count(invitation_id),

if(Metrics='Delivered',Sum(delivered),

if(Metrics='Completions Rate',Sum(completions)/

Sum(delivered),))), if(Metrics='Completions Rate','#,##0.0%', '#,##0'))

Or

In the Load script you required to do the manipulation for the NULL handling technique
