## Pivot file count error when nulls present

I am a newbie to PBI.   I do use Tableau.

I use the following calculation to count the number of xyz records in xyz_total that have a score = or > 38.  I use Distinctcount on the Record id because the file is pivoted (Record Id is a unique identifier)

xyzall = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Output[Record Id]),FILTER(Output,Output[xyz_total] >= 38))

I now want a count of all the records in xyz_total column that are not blank.   Note:  a score can be 0.
A Distinct count of Record id includes the null records because the null is in xyz-total column
How do I do this
Many thanks in advance

Hi @MalcolmR,

You can use the BLANK() function in DAX along with the operator "==" which is strictly blank, which will ignore the 0s in your column and count the blanks.

You can use it in the another measure changing the condition in the filter argument of calculate.

Here is a link explaining the BLANK() function.

Hope this helps.

You can use it in the another measure changing the condition in the filter argument of calculate.
