Workbook Formula fields tips

edited Apr 16, 2020 4:17AM in SuiteAnalytics Workbook 4 comments

I would like to encourage more SuiteAnalytic users to use calculated fields, known as "formula fields" in Workbook UI. It can help you to achieve the goal for your report or data analysis. But I know that sometimes it's not easy to understand the syntax and error messages formula builder produces.

I've prepared few tips on how to construct your formula/calculated fields in Workbook and don't end up with an error message.

One of the typical complications is working with multiple type of fields. In such case, you'll usually need to convert some fields so they're compatible for the mutual mathematical operation you need. Formula builder in Workbooks makes some conversion automatically and for others you've to use the right casting function. The table below will help you to understand where it's necessary to use conversion/cast function and for what data types it's done automatically.
