Invalid type in operator ==

Hi

 

I am getting an Invalid type in operator == error on a tool and I don't know why. I did use the ToNumber() formula to see if that is causing the issue but I still see the issue.


Can someone help resolve it?

 

Thanks,

Christine

Is the [Period] field a string? If not, remove the quotes around the values and give that a try.

@cwoo ,

 

Please check to see if [Period] is a string data type.  If it isn't, then remove the quotes from 1,2,3,4.

Also,  your ELSE statement is putting "" into a DOUBLE field.  That should probably be:

 

ELSE NULL()

 

Cheers,

@CharlieS ,

 

Great minds think alike.  Very loose definition of great.

That did the trick. Thanks!

The [Period] field was an integer.

 

Thanks,
