How to show "Unknown" instead of blanks

Hello, I've searched for similiar questions, but so far I haven't found an anwser to this.


I have two tables, say Table 1 and Table 2, where Table 1 has a 1-to-Many relationship to Table 2 and the tables have the values listed in the snippet. In Power Bi I want to use column 1 from Table 1 and the values from Table 2, however when I do Power Bi shows the column that doesn't match as "(Blank)". How can I have Power Bi show this as "Unknown" or something besides blank?

you can either do this with:


COALESCE(Your column/measure,"Unknown")
if(isblank(your colum/measure),"unknown",Your column/measure)
if your using a column use a calculated column for the DAX formula if it's a measure use a measure for the DAX calculation
If I answered your question, please mark my post as solution, Appreciate your Kudos 👍
