IF ISBLANK Optimization

Hello everyone!

I'm wondering if my current solution is really the best solution. Maybe someone else can provide some feedback on that measure.

I have a simple transaction table with the following 3 columns. The 4th column is the result of the dax measure.

OrderValueQuantityRatio
100100502
101100  
102 50 

 

The objective of the Dax Measure "Ratio" is to calculate the ratio between Value and Quantity. But, if a column contains no value, than the result should be BLANK. This is my current solution:

 

Ratio =
VAR _Quantity =
    SUM ( Sales[Quantity] )
VAR _Value =
    SUM ( Sales[Value] )
VAR _Ratio =
    DIVIDE (
        _Quantity,
        _Value
    )
RETURN
    IF (
        OR (
            ISBLANK ( _Quantity ),
            ISBLANK ( _Value )
        ),
        BLANK (),
        _Ratio
    )

Mate, all you need is this formula (and it's faster for obvious reasons):

Ratio =
    DIVIDE (
        SUM ( Sales[Quantity] ),
        SUM ( Sales[Value] )
    )

Hi, @joshua1990 

please correct me if I wrongly understood your question.

Please try the below.

Ratio 2 =
COALESCE (
DIVIDE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Quantity] ), SUM ( 'Table'[Value] ), "" ),
""
)

Thanks, but why would you say your measure works better? What is the advantage here?
