NaN Error

I created a new field, Cost/Quantity, and the output is coming up at NaN. 

 

I was able to see the Cost by year on a bar chart and quantity by year on a bar chart fine, but when I tried to doing Cost/Quantity on a bar chart, I am not getting anything due to NaN values. How do i fix this?

 

Thanks

@Vvelardenope, turns out this is a custom column in the query editor. No DIVIDE there.

Typically you get NaN when dividing 0 by 0.

So adjust your formula something like if Quantity = 0 then 0 else Cost / Quantity.

Specializing in Power Query Formula Language (M)

it is not working for me

THANK YOU! That was so easy to fix. Thank you!

How do i get rid of this? Would I be able to replace it with 0 or null?

@tiffanynguyen

 

hi, use this:

 

Measure=Divide([Cost],[Quantity],0)

How did you write the formula in the custom column?
I have the same issue.

You're dividing by zero. That's impossible. That's why you're getting the error. You need to put in an if statement to return null when [D_Act_2doTermino] is 0.
