## Count Blanks Table

Hi,

I have a dataset with a table containing all stores and another table with sales. Not all stores have sales. How do I count the number of stores with no sales? I have looked into the COUNTBLANK, but I don't think it can help me, given my data structure.

My dataset is like this

Table A

|Store|

Store A

Store B

Store C

Store D

Store E

Table B

|SalesID|Store|Quantity|

01 Store C 10

02 Store D 5

03 Store A 20

How do I count the number of stores with zero sales? In the example above, the answer should be 2 (Store B and E).

Any help will be highly appreciated.

## Re: Count Blanks Table

If you have a measure that calculates sales.

`Sales = SUM ( 'Table B'[qty] )`

You can use that in a COUNTROWS measure over your stores

```No Sales =
CALCULATE(
COUNTROWS( 'Table A' ),
FILTER(
'Table A',
[Sales] = 0
)
)```

jdbuchanan71's solution works perfect as long as you are able to relate the two tables. If you cannnot relate the tables in the data model you can try this:

```Stores with No Sales =
VAR TotalStores = DISTINCTCOUNT( 'Table A'[Store] )
VAR StoresWithSales =
CALCULATE(
DISTINCTCOUNT( 'Table A'[Store] ),
TREATAS(
SUMMARIZE( 'Table B', 'Table B'[Store] ),
'Table A'[Store]
)
)
RETURN
TotalStores - StoresWithSales```

Hi,

I have a connection between the tables, so @jdbuchanan71 helped me.

Thank you so much for taking time to show an alternative solution.
