How to exclude an entry from visualisation table if both fields are showing zeros

 
Raw data          
CountryProject IDSub-project IDChart of accountsProject Manager IDVariable CostFixed Cost    
Japan7799663355669341633               2,000         5,000

Above example is raw data. In visual table (below), I do not want to show the line if both Variable Cost AND Fixed Cost are zeros. How do I do that?

Thanks for the sample data. It makes things much easier.

Seeing the dataset, the data contains rows which, when grouped by the IDs, sum out to 0, This means that filter expressions referenced to row value <> 0 wil still return these rows (they have values but their aggregated sum is 0). Here is an example:

Sum is 0.JPG

 If you want to exclude these rows since they sum to 0, use the following measure instead to filter the visual in the filter pane (set the value to "is greater or equal to 1")

 

Exclude Sum to 0 rows =
VAR Summ =
    //This creates a virtual table summarizing the measures by the IDs/fields included
    SUMMARIZE (
        Table1,
        Table1[Project ID],
        Table1[Sub-Project ID],
        Table1[Chart of Accounts],
        Table1[Project Manager ID],
        Table1[Line Type],
        "Fixed", [Sum Fixed Costs],
        "Variable", [Sum Variable Cost]
    )
RETURN
    //The measure filters the virtual table to count rows containing "ACTUAL" and with summarized values which are not 0
    COUNTROWS (
        FILTER (
            Summ,
            Table1[Line Type] = "ACTUAL"
                && OR ( [Fixed] <> 0, [Variable] <> 0 )
        )
    )

 

 

and you will get this result

Here is one way of doing this.

Create a measure to identify each row by a "fullID", filter the rows to only include rows with either values, and then use this measure in the "filters for this visual" in the filter pane (where the measure returns 1)

 

Include Rows = 
VAR FullID = VALUES('DataTable'[Project ID]) & VALUES('DataTable'[Sub-project ID]) & VALUES('DataTable'[Chart of accounts]) & VALUES('DataTable'[Project Manager ID])
RETURN
COUNTROWS(
    CALCULATETABLE(
            ADDCOLUMNS('DataTable', "ID", FullID), 
               FILTER('DataTable', 
                  OR([Fixed Cost]>0,[Variable Cost] >0))))

Hi @PaulDBrown I tried your suggested method. It doesn't quite work on my real dataset. I'm not quite sure if it is because my previous dataset example was too simplified. I am attaching the dataset in Excel below. These are the dataset where some lines work and some doesn't based on your suggested method. 

 

P/S I only want to show "ACTUAL" (as per Pivot).

If both Variable and Fixed cost are zero then, the grand totals for these fields will stay the same regards of the filter.

Are you referring to any other columns other than these where you have grand totals?

hi @Fowmy 

 

the grand totals that i'm referring to are the grand totals of the 2 fields in visualisation table. so meaning, if originally before any changes, the variable cost grand total should be 3000 while fixed cost grand total should be 8000 based on above example. this is a control check as to whether the suggestion works. but when i use the filter pane "variable cost is not zero" and "fixed cost is not zero", the grand total changed to a lesser amount. so it is indicating that this suggestion eliminated some lines that should not have been eliminated.

Write a DAX measure and apply that in the visual level filter.

ShowHide =
VAR _variableCost = [Variable Cost]
VAR _fixedCost = [Fixed Cost]
VAR _result =
    IF ( AND ( _variableCost = 0, _fixedCost = 0 ), "hide", "show" )
RETURN
    _result

set the filter condition as ShowHide is Show.

Hi @nandukrishnavs this solution is close. Good thing is grand total remains the same. However while eliminating some lines where both are zeros, it is however still showing certain lines where both values are zeros. Not sure what could be the cause?

@gracechong 

 

Updated the measure logic.

ShowHide =
VAR _variableCost = [Variable Cost]
VAR _fixedCost = [Fixed Cost]
VAR _result =
    IF (
        AND (
            _variableCost = 0
                || ISBLANK ( _variableCost ),
            _fixedCost = 0
                || ISBLANK ( _fixedCost )
        ),
        "hide",
        "show"
    )
RETURN
    _result

Hi, the updated measure above doesn't work. I am attaching the raw data here in case you are able to figure out what field is causing the measure to not work.

 

P/S I only want to show "ACTUAL" (as per Pivot).

@gracechong

Based on your raw data, I have created a calculated column.

ShowHideColumn = IF(AND('Table'[Fixed Cost]=0,'Table'[Variable Cost]=0),"Hide","Show")

Then applied it in the visual level filter. Please refer to the attached pbix file.

@gracechong 

you can use the Filter Pane to set both Variable and Fixed Cost filter to NOT EQUAL BLANK one by one

Hi @Fowmy , this method doesn't work as the entries are actually not null/ blank values. They are actual zeros. I also tried to apply these in filter pane if they are not zeros for both "Variable Cost" and "Fixed Cost" fields but it doesn't work in the sense that it changes the final grand total amount. By right if it works, it shouldn't change grand total amount as we are only excluding lines that are zero for both.
