Convert Text to Data

Hi,

A simple query but one which I can see already on site.

I need to convert True / False text column to number (i.e. True = 1, False = 0)

I know there should be a simple DAX for it but can't locate it.

 

Also, i presume the Transform data option doesnt cross from Text to Numeric and needs to stay the same for conversion? (i.e. Text to Text)

 

Thanks

Hi @Smithy33 

 

Create a new column:
Columnnew= IF(Table[Columnold]= "True", 1,0)

 

I hope this is what you needed.

Mark this as a solution if I answered your question.

 

Thanks
