Force Zero for dates using measure

Hello,
I have a data sheet that has a list of dates and I need to count how many times those dates show up. Problem is there are some dates that do not show up at all and result in a blank. I need them to show 0 on my visual and I believe the method is to force them to be 0 instead of blank. Is there a measure to force zero for dates?

@whysotan ,

 

Try creating a calculate table using dax below:

Column = Table[Data] + 0

Hello @mwegener,

Here's a picture of the visual.

As you can see there's some months not showing anything at all and I'd like to have them display 0 instead, main reason is relative date filtering doesn't appear like it works properly if there's any null or blank dates.

Hi @whysotan ,

 

what is your measure?

 

Maybe this helps:

 

CountRows =
VAR _CountRows = COUNTROWS('Table')
RETURN
IF(ISBLANK(_CountRows);0;_CountRows)
