Power Function Error

POWER function is unable to calculate all equations correctly.

 

Cube root of '-8' is '-2'

 

But when I tried the "POWER(-8, 1 / 3)" calculation, it resulted as "NaN" (shown in Image)

Re: Power Function Error

Thanks for the reply @Misbah
I have a complex formula where POWER was causing the issue and I used the similar workaround by putting a conditional statement on the equation that is inside the power function but wanted to check if there are any better options.
Please let me know if you come through any other efficient solution


Thank You Once Again

Re: Power Function Error

I've flagged this up with our developers who are discussing. It is currently a limitation and potentially something that could be made to work. Unfortunately I have no workaround for you...

Although it looks like the limitation on the product side. Here is what you can do

 

You can make the negative number into Positive, Apply POWER function to it with "-" sign.
