Re: showing false when list does not any record

@jayendra,

Add a new blank query in Power BI Desktop, then create a function in the Advanced Editor of the query with the List.IsEmpty function to check the list, when the list is empty, return false, otherwise expand the list. Below is an example for your reference.

let
     export = (TextName as text, listname as list) =>
        let
            name = TextName,
            Table = Table.FromList(listname, Splitter.SplitByNothing(), null, null, ExtraValues.Error),
            result= if List.IsEmpty(listname) then name else Table
in
 result
in
    export

Hi,

 

Could you try with Column = IF(ISBLANK(table[columntocheck]);"False";table[columntocheck])
