## MEDIANX to ignore Blank or zeros

Hi,

I have the following measure:

MEDIANX( 'All Store Info',
DIVIDE('All Store Info'[Turnover],'All Store Info'[Transactions]) + 'Increase of Basket Value'[Increase of Basket Value Value]
Which is meant to esablish the increased basket value for each store per day (based on a increase basket value slider)
This work perfectly on a row by row basis. However when drilling up to monthly the MEDIANX used is taking blanks and zeros
into acocunt and producing lower numbers.
Is there a way to get Medianx to ignore blanks?

Thanks

Can you filter avoid the blank rows? It Agg is coming zero

in case of row is zero and you want to avoid

MEDIANX( filter('All Store Info',condition to filter),

Hi @duggy ,

I think you should create a calculated column not a measre in your scenario. Here we can update the formula as below.

```MEDIANFilter =
IF (
'All Store Info'[Turnover] = BLANK (),
BLANK (),
MEDIANX (
FILTER ( 'All Store Info', 'All Store Info'[Turnover] <> BLANK () ),
DIVIDE ( 'All Store Info'[Turnover], 'All Store Info'[Transactions] )
)
)
```

That would be ideal however the reason I used the measure is that I need to get the value of the slider.

Basically the user can slide the slider and select the amount to add:

MEDIANX( 'All Store Info',
DIVIDE('All Store Info'[Turnover],'All Store Info'[Transactions]) + 'Increase of Basket Value'[Increase of Basket Value Value]
)
The +'Increase of Basket Value'[Increase of Basket Value Value]. If I was able to access this value then I can do the calculated column, but it seems I can only access it from measure.

I had a similar problem in a What-if scenario, but worked around it by using a variable and wrapping the result in an IF that would return FALSE if blank/0 which forces the MEDIANX to ignore the result.

MEDIANX (
'All Store Info',
VAR _Result =
DIVIDE ( 'All Store Info'[Turnover], 'All Store Info'[Transactions] ) + 'Increase of Basket Value'[Increase of Basket Value Value]
RETURN
IF ( _Result <> 0_ResultFALSE () )
)
