Variant DAX Data type


The Variant data type is used for expressions that might return different data types, depending on the conditions. For example, the following statement can return either an integer or a string, so it returns a variant type:

IF ( [measure] > 0, 1, "N/A" )

The Variant data type cannot be used as a data type for a column in a regular table. A DAX measure and in general a DAX expression can be Variant.
