## Including a zero value period in Line chart calculated via Measure

Hi Guys,

I've created a line Chart by using two measures:

Blue line

Green line

The line chart result is as follows:

How can I make sure the blue line which has a value of ZERO in P5 is pulled through?

Is that possible with a measure?

I know that some things unfortunately aren't possible with Measures in PowerBI.

Thank you!!!

Your issue is that the count function returns null instead of 0 if there are no values. So, you need to modify your formula with an IF statement to allow it to return 0 when the count is 0. The formula is below.

CALCULATE1 = IF(CALCULATE(COUNT(Table2[Profit Center]),FILTER(Table2,Table2[Profit Center] = "P736064")) = 0, 0 ,CALCULATE(COUNT(Table2[Profit Center]),FILTER(Table2,Table2[Profit Center] = "P736064")))

Hi nsexton12,

Thank you very much for your help. I will try the advised formula for my learning process.

I literally just sorted the issue slightly differently:

NEW formula Blue line:

Stock PO's GR'd by Finance =
VAR ForceZero = COUNTROWS('3 Source_KE5Z') > 0
VAR Amt = calculate(count('3 Source_KE5Z'[Profit Center]),filter('3 Source_KE5Z','3 Source_KE5Z'[Profit Center]="P736064")) + If(ForceZero, 0)
RETURN Amt

result

Keep learning.

Nice! There are always many ways to solve each problem. Could you please mark my reply as a solution if it worked for you?

Yes, It did work. Took a little longer as I'm new to PBI and tried to apply it to my situation.

Thank you!!!
