Calculated column in Attribute view

Hello Team,

I am creating a calculated column and found some error with respect to data type, the Quarter values I should get as Q1,Q2,Q3 and Q4.

I have selected data type is VARCHAR -Can you just guide me on this...

Error message is:

Short Text

Attribute type is not valid


Mismatch between data type defined and values computed.


Check calculated measure/attribute definition and ensure data types match.

    Hi Rishikesh,

    What is the data type for QTR? if it is not string you should first convert it to a string and then use it.

    'Q'+ string ( QTR)
