countblank for 20 columns

Hi, 

In excel, I had a column that would review 20 columns, and if there was a blank in any of them it would flag the row that there is missing data.

The formula I used in a new column was: 

=IF(COUNTBLANK(A2Smiley Frustrated2)>0,1,0)  and if it equaled 1, it meant at least one column was blank. 

 

But - I can't figure out how to do the same in Power BI For Desktop. It has a countblank function but it can't compare multiple columns. Do I need to create 20 additional columns each month or is there a simple way to do this?

 

Thanks!

 

Rob

Re: countblank for 20 columns

Thanks Victor - that worked like a charm. I wasn't aware of those options when editing data - this will help me with other things too Smiley Happy
