Slicer showing Blank as a value when data does not have any blank values

Hi ,

 

I notice Blank as an option in the Slicer Values list or dropdown when actually the data does not have a blank value.

 

I noticed this in the october and also in Novemebr 2017 release.

The left is a slicer and the right is table visual.

 

Can somebody share how to get rid of the Blank appearing, as slicers do not have visual filtering option.

 

if it is a bug then Power bi team should act on it fast.

 

Thanks

Hi @CheenuSing,

 

if your relationship tables contains records who can't correct mapping to related table, it will shows value as 'blank' option in slicer.(blank option means the missing records)

Re: Slicer showing Blank as a value when data does not have any blank values

Hi @v-shex-msft

 

Thanks for the note.

 

Just wanted to know how come a date table which is created based on the fact table min and max date, when put on a slicer can have blank as an option.  It is understandable that some dates in the date table may not have values in the fact table.

 

Cheers
