Filter not working with SUM

Hi,

 

I have the following code as art of an HTML text:

 

"ID: " & ContractID & " SUM: " & Sum( Filter( 'RAC Reports', ContractID = 'Contract ID'), TimeUsed)

 

'RAC Reports' is a SP list, ContractID comes from a different SP list. TimeUsed is the time per report. 

For some reason it doesn't return any values:

2021-03-01 10_53_30-Window.png

However, when I hardcode the ContractID with the number (92):

 

"ID: " & ContractID & " SUM: " & Sum( Filter( 'RAC Reports', 92 = 'Contract ID'), TimeUsed)

 

I do get the Sum() of the values:

2021-03-01 10_51_39-Window.png

I do see some errors, but don't understand what the error is in the code used:

2021-03-01 10_53_01-Window.png

 

Any idea what might be happening?

Thanks,

Bart

Something is going wrong with the conversion between the two.

I would suggest using the Monitor Tool and look to see exactly what is being passed in the filter criteria.

Do you still get the error messages with the Text conversion formula, even though it returns the wrong sum?

At first glance, I'd say to change your formula to the following:

"ID: " & ContractID & " SUM: " & Sum( Filter( 'RAC Reports', Value(ContractID) = 'Contract ID'), TimeUsed)

I am not sure what type your ContractID is, but it seems to want a numeric value.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

That's what I thought. On the SP list both are text values, and using Value() doesn't make any difference.

Thanks.

If they are both text columns, then Try to convert to text instead:

"ID: " & ContractID & " SUM: " & Sum( Filter( 'RAC Reports', Text(ContractID) = 'Contract ID'), TimeUsed)

That doesn't work either.

 

When I use:

"ID: " & ContractID & " SUM: " & Sum( Filter( 'RAC Reports', 'Contract ID'= Text(ContractID)), TimeUsed)

The sum will be 27390 no matter what the real sum is .

Thanks Randy,

 

I have implemented it in a different way now, not sure why the other solution was not working though.

 

Thanks again!
