Numbers in CPQ Cloud are often stored as strings. In order to perform any calculations with these values, the data must first be parsed into a number.

Parsing data can be error prone. By being thorough and type-checking our data, we can create flexible solutions that behave reasonably when dealing with invalid inputs.

Number parsing may come into play in BML, JavaScript, XSL, or any other scripting or programming language that passes data around or accepts user input. This article focuses on the mechanisms used within BML.
