$ Amount

Options

I am using a Sales Funnel chart. When I have a dollar amount such as $12,363.12, the amount is omitted from the total. If I load it with just $12,363 it will show up. How can I still get a total with having the cents included? I have tried floating and fixed decimal both.

    Because you have a $ in the data it's treating it as a string and can't do any mathematical operations on the data. Remove the $ from your data either in the source itself or using an ETL and convert it to a decimal number. You can then format this number as a currency in the card itself. This will allow you to do mathematical operations on the data.

    is your data formatted at just numbers and decimals or do you have the $ in your raw data?
