The string is non-numeric error message

Hi All,

I'm getting the following error message whenever I try to refresh my report and scroll to the next page to view the report data.

"The string is non-numeric"

The formula is as below:

If

(IsNull ({PRODUCTIVITY_LOG.PRODUCTIVE_HOURS})) Then 0

Else

ToNumber({PRODUCTIVITY_LOG.PRODUCTIVE_HOURS})

I get the error on the "ToNumber({PRODUCTIVITY_LOG.PRODUCTIVE_HOURS})" part of the formula.

Please note that the field "PRODUCTIVITY_LOG.PRODUCTIVE_HOURS" is of the datatype nvarchar(100) in a SQL Server database.

Any ideas on how to avoid this will be much appreciated.

    Hi Nimish,

    Modify the formula to:

    If (IsNull ({PRODUCTIVITY_LOG.PRODUCTIVE_HOURS})) Then 0

    Else if isnumeric({PRODUCTIVITY_LOG.PRODUCTIVE_HOURS}) Then

    ToNumber({PRODUCTIVITY_LOG.PRODUCTIVE_HOURS})

    Else 0
