New column calculation - Infinity

I added a new column and created a formula to convert my sales figures to functional currency. All similar data could be calculated normally but some comparable data are showing infinity. They have the same condition with no other differences. 

 

Thank you in advance!

@carmenchong , can you share calculation.

 

Also, use divide to avoid divide by 0

 

Divide([Col1],[Col2])

Hi, @carmenchong 

 

As amitchandak  said, the divide function can be used.
The reason why infinity is shown is that there are some values that are 0. 0 divided by a number is infinity. You can use the divide function to avoid infinity because the function can get 0 when it encounters a value of 0. Or you can make a conditional judgment, for example a/b, if a is 0 then get 0, otherwise a/b.

 

 

Hope this helps.
