Symptom

Environment

SAP Successfactors

Cause

 

  • Before 1511: The picklist columns can not be used in calculated column, with their raw data type which is number. It was always present as the String , which is the run type data type for such columns.
  • After 1511: Picklist can be treated as a number field when needing to perform a mathematical calculation on a pick list field. 
  • Limitation: The feature is available only for Adhoc Live data.

Resolution

  1. Create a calculated column and add a picklist field which was giving the text value.
  2. Double click on the field and change the Function to "Raw value".
  3. Once you change the Function, the calculated column will show the Numerical value associated with the text field.
