VALUE DAX Function (Text)

Converts a text string that represents a number to a number.


VALUE ( <Text> )
Parameter Attributes Description

The text to be converted.

Return values

Scalar A single decimal value.

The converted number in decimal data type.


The value passed as the text parameter can be in any of the constant, number, date, or time formats recognized by DAX. If text is not in one of these formats, an error is returned.

VALUE is not common because DAX implicitly converts text to numbers as necessary.
