Slicer that excludes null from options, but always includes null in dataset

Hello,

 

My data comes in so that actuals and forecast data are combined in a single table. Every month, a new forecast is created so there are multiple versions of the forecast. Each Forecast gets a version. For the Actual data, the "Versions" shows null. 

 

MonthTypeVersion
JanActualnull
FebActualnull
MarActualnull
MarForecastFeb_FC
AprForecastFeb_FC
MayForecastFeb_FC
JunForecastFeb_FC
AprForecastMar_FC
MayForecastMar_FC
JunForecastMar_FC

 

For example, in the data set above, creating a slicer using the "Version" column would give you 3 options:  

  • null
  • Feb_FC
  • Mar_FC

I want to remove "null" from the slicer, but without actually filtering out the null data.  (Put another way, I want to always include null, giving users the option to filter between Feb_FC or Mar_FC). 

 

Any idea how this could be accomplished?

 

Thanks in advance!
