Power BI Formula Help

Hello,

 

I'm having problems getting an expression to work as I am getting the "Expressions that yield variant data-type cannot be used to define calculated columns".

 

This is what I entered "QC Release Date = IF(IM_ItemWarehouse[Warehouse Code] = "QC",DATEADD(IM_ItemCost[ReceiptDate],17,DAY),"")"

 

I bascially need to say that if an item is in a specific warehouse, then add 17 days to the "Receipt Date" else Null.

 

Can someone help me with thisp please?

 

Thank you!

Re: Power BI Formula Help

Try using BLANK() instead of "".

 

You are trying to return a number under one condition and text under the other condition.

Now I am getting a different error.

"Function 'DATEADD' expects a contiguous selection when the date column is not unique, has gaps or it contains time portion."

Perhaps try:

 

QC Release Date = IF(IM_ItemWarehouse[Warehouse Code] = "QC",DATEADD(IM_ItemCost[ReceiptDate].[Date],17,DAY),BLANK())
