Show items with no data not working

Hi everyone,

I'm a brand new user of Power BI (desktop) and am muddling through my first financial report with a lot of help from this forum but this issue has me stumped.

I have 2 matrix tables. They are fine until I change the Reporting Line on the slicer. When I do that the Strategic Initiatives column in the top table disappears (Not all Reporting Lines have data in this category but I still want the column to be there). I have checked "Show items with no data" for columns and rows but it still disappears.  

 

The bottom table keeps all 5 columns.  I need the two tables to stay in alignment with each other. 

Has anyone got any ideas?

I've attached a photo (confidential data covered up with white squares)

I think I've fixed it. 

I made a new measure which said that if the values were blank then change to 0. The columns are now staying put even when the Reporting Line is changed.

Re: Show items with no data not working

Hi @Donna,

 

It seems that you have solved your problem in another way.

 

Please always accept the replies making sense as solution to your question so that people who may have the same question can get the solution directly.

 

In addition, for your scenario, I think that the blank value may be filtered by the slicer.

 

If you still need help, please share a dummy pbix file which can reproduce the scenario, so that we can help further investigate on it? You can upload it to OneDrive or Dropbox and post the link here. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.)

 

Best  Regards,

Cherry
