Hello :slightly_smiling_face:

I have this formula to calculate Manpower/Days/Hours and a Rate into a dollar amount here:
IF({MP/Day} > 0, {MP/Day} * Days * Hours * Rate,“0”)

and it works! However it’s not being recognized by Airtable as a ## therefore I cannot get a sum, and it also doesn’t show commas when I’m using the field to generate totals in an interface.
I figure I could play around with the formatting to get commas etc. but for the life of me I cannot figure out why it is not being recognized as a number that I can add up a total of?

Thank you!

Hi. Just change your “0” to 0. See if that solves it. Cheers.

LMAO. I can’t believe it was that simple. Thank you so much!!
