show items with no data as 0 instead of blanks

temp 1.PNG

 

Just a little background on the above table:

 

Project Name, Category Name, and Portfolio Name are from a table called 'Projects"

 

Actual, Committed are from a table called 'Expenses'

 

Projects is a one to many relationship with Expenses

 

In the above scenario, the project "cancer test project 5" has no related records in the Expenses table, so it is showing as blank, is there a way to show 0 instead

 

I have tried doing the following in the Projects table, but it gave unexpected results:  Actual = IF(ISBLANK(SUMX(RELATEDTABLE('Expenses'), [Actual])) = FALSE(), SUMX(RELATEDTABLE('Expenses'), [Actual]), 0)

Hi, please try with this Dax Formula in a measure:

 

ActualM =
IF (
    CALCULATE ( SUM ( Expenses[Actual] ) ) = BLANK (),
    0,
    CALCULATE ( SUM ( Expenses[Actual] ) )
)

Even easier would be to add zero to your Measure

Then you don't need an IF statement to check if the expression returns BLANK ( )

So if your SUMX Measure works get rid of the IF statement and just add " + 0  "at the end

same with if you use any other expression (something like this for example)

Measure = CALCULATE ( SUM (table[column] ), FILTER (... ) ) + 0 

This will ensure you get a 0 when its blank!

Good Luck! Smiley Happy

 

UPDATE: March 2020

New DAX COALESCE function - returns the first argument that is not blank!

If all arguments return blank then COALESCE returns blank as well!

So if you need a zero returned and not blank and your Measures don't address the blanks on their own

Add a zero as the last argument in case all Measures return blanks!

 

COALESCE ( [Measure1], [Measure2], 0 )
