Summary

Summing columns in OBI that contain NULL values results in a NULL sum

Content

Does anyone know how to handle NULL values as part of a calculation?  I have columns in which some are returning NULL values and some are not - i want to SUM these columns, but when I do, if there is a NULL value present, the SUM is always NULL.

For example, col1 + col2 = col3
If col2 is null, then col3 evaluates to null even if col1 <> NULL.

I have tried CAST and IFNULL functions within the column formula,but it does not seem to help.

Howdy, Stranger!
