Hide a row in a hierarchy if it is BLANk



 I have a below requirement, please help if there is a solution.


I have below matrix with hierarchy level data (Have 10 levels drilldown in the hierarchy).

Now based on our data Level4, Level5 and follow on are having BLANK values as shown in the below picture.


I need to hide these BLANK rows as that makes no sense to display.


Tried using Visual Filters but if i filter Level4 or Level5 not to display BLANK, then whole hierarchy is not displayed.

Not sure how to resolve this, if we have any solution in DAX or any other way to achieve this.

@nagaraj - It's difficult to know exactly how to attack this. Generally Power BI does a pretty good job of not displaying blanks so not sure of this specific circumstance. Please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here:

Hi @Greg_Deckler 


 Thanks for your inputs, i have gone through the list to see specific scenario. But unfortunately the issue i am referring to is not listed.
