Display image or text when there is no data?

Hey all,

 

I have a few reports up and running and when I start using slicers to display the different visuals by "department" I have noticed that some of the smaller departments have gaps in their data because they are very small... so there are a few of the visuals that are just blank. Is there any way to provide some indicative text like "No Data Available" or an image? Just so that its clear that its not "broken"

 

Cheers,

J

Yes.  Just return your measure in a variable and then use IF() to return alternate text if blank.

 

MyMeasure = var measure1 = [Original Measure]

return IF(ISBLANK(measure1), "Not Enough Data", measure1)

 

If this works for you, please mark it as the solution.  Kudos are appreciated too.  Please let me know if not.

Regards,

Pat

Excellent I will give that a try!

 

What if instead of text I wanted to display an image? Is it the file path or url?

You can use UNICHAR to return an image.  See this link - https://exceleratorbi.com.au/dax-unichar-function-power-bi/

 

Or you can just use the Windows key + the period button to insert an icon.  Insert it as text inside quotes like this "😊"
