## 0 instead of blank

How can I show 0 instead of blank as a result of this measure?

CALCULATE (
SUM('Opportunity Contact Role'[Amount__c]),
'Opportunity Contact Role'[Close_Date__c] >= DATE(2022, 7, 1) &&
'Opportunity Contact Role'[Close_Date__c] <= DATE(2023, 6, 30)
)

I've tried several ways to add 0 to the measure, but each time when I add the measure to my table I just get a spinning circle and eventually craps out. Works fine, as seen above with the 0, but I need the 0!

Thanks!

Ended up creating custom column based on date range.

if [Close_Date__c] >= #date(2022, 7, 1) and [Close_Date__c] <= #date(2023, 6, 30) then [Amount__c] else 0

Hey @PBrainNWH ,

this article explains why returning 0 instead of BLANK is not a good idea: Chris Webb's BI Blog (crossjoin.co.uk)

The aricle also shows a simple example how make a measure return 0 instead of BLANK.

I would give this a try:

``````CALCULATE (
SUM('Opportunity Contact Role'[Amount__c]),
'Opportunity Contact Role'[Close_Date__c] >= DATE(2022, 7, 1) &&
'Opportunity Contact Role'[Close_Date__c] <= DATE(2023, 6, 30)
)+0``````

Hopefully this provides what you are looking for.

Regards,

Tom

I get the perpetual spinning circle when I add +0.
