I have a "description" column in PowerBI that I use within a PowerBI table. When I attempt to refresh the report, I continue to get an error about this particular table. After further checking, I see the error ties back to a column within this table; it has multiple data types in the Description column. The first character of the Description may start with a # or may start with text; afterall it is a free-form fillin description field. Since I am not using this column in a calculation, and I only want to display this information, how can I get around this issue?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've tried every combination and still I am unsuccessful at using this statement. I am using the column name that contains the mixed data type.
Text.From([WARRANTY_CODE]) otherwise "-999"
It returns, "To use special characters in a column name, enclose the entire name in brackets.
Warranty Code is the column containing both text and #'s.
Any add'l help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Here is the file. The first column is the one that contains text and #'s.
