Replace null with 0

Hi ,

I want to replace Null value for all columns with zero in power BI Query.

For example, 

Table.ReplaceValue(#"Pivoted Column",null,0,Replacer.ReplaceValue,{"X1 ", "X2", "X3"})

 

I do not want to write my column name  like  {"X1 ", "X2", "X3"}.

Is there any function in M for replacing all columns with one value ?

 

Thanks

Nicki

Re: Replace null with 0

Hi @Nicki,

you can use Table.TransformColumns function for your expected output.

 

let
    // my test data
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMlTSUQIiI6VYnWgQwxjEj40FAA==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Column1 = _t, Column2 = _t, Column3 = _t]),
    // get all column names as list
    allColumnNames = Table.ColumnNames(Source),
    // transform the column name list into a list of list, where every inner list contains column name and a function for replacing null value
    allTranformations = List.Transform(allColumnNames, each {_, each if _ = null or _ = "" then 0 else _}),
    // apply the transformations
    tranformColumns = Table.TransformColumns(Source, allTranformations)
in
    tranformColumns
