Convert to whole number not workign

I thought I asked this question last week, but dang if I could find the post...sorry if this is a duplicate.

 

Anyhow, I've got a column I'm trying ot convert to whole number, but I get an error.


The table consists of 4 digit numbers...but there are some values with blanks...hence the error (or so I think)

 

How would I mod the querey to exclude anything with blanks?

 

Thanks!

Re: Convert to whole number not workign

 In your report go to Edit Queries, then from the left select the table where you need to remove the blanks and then on the column you want click the drop down arrow and select Remove Empty option. Then click Close & Apply and that should do it.
