Need to display value is commit date is greater than two years, NM if date is less than two years

I need to display a value, but if the current date is less than two years from the initial commitment date, I need to display NM.  When I try the formula below,  I keep getting "a string is required here" for the  (({V_fund_invest.outstand_commit}/({v_fund_invest.distribution} + {v_fund_invest.adj_value}))

If CurrentDate - ({v_fund_invest.initial_commit_date}) < 730 then "NM" else (({V_fund_invest.outstand_commit}/({v_fund_invest.distribution} + {v_fund_invest.adj_value}))

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A formula must return only 1 data type.  Since you want to display NM some of the time the value the rest of the time must be a string

If CurrentDate - ({v_fund_invest.initial_commit_date}) < 730 then
      "NM"
else
      CStr(({V_fund_invest.outstand_commit}/({v_fund_invest.distribution} + {v_fund_invest.adj_value}), 2)
