Count in related table removes rows rather than setting them to zero

I have two tables, many-one. I am counting instances in the many, in the one. It works, but for rows in the one, where there are no instances in the many, Power BI is REMOVING the row. I don't want this. I want the row to remain, and for the count to be ZERO

 

Any ideas, or should I just bail on PBI and do this in a SQL View? (I would have been done with this in the time it took me to post this).

Hi @joglidden2 ,

 

Did want show items with no data. Please refer this article.

Or you can replace this result by a new measure.

Measure = 
IF( ISBLANK( SUM( table[field] ) ), 0, SUM( table[field] ) )

Ok, update on this one: by adding a duplicate row of the ID column, and then setting it to 'Count', I was able to get all the 'blank' rows back. Instead of a zero, they render blank for the count in many. 

Then, go to field formatting, and make that new count column disappear. There's got to be a better way.
