Problem deleting empty rows when transforming data

Hi! I have a table with about 10000 registries. I want to remove the rows that has a column set to null. I have done "Remove Rows -> Remove Blank Rows" twice. The first time it did remove a few, but the second time it didn't, and I still have many blank rows. Do you know why this might be happening and how can I remove all of the blank ones?

  1. In Power Query, you apply a filter to the column so that it does not include nulls.
  2. Regardless of the column, you remove rows that are blank. Start menu. Remove Rows option, Remove Blank Rows option.

When you filter values out of a column in the query editor, it's essentially the same as deleting them. Those values will not be loaded to your data model, which will have the benefits of decreasing your load time and having fewer rows to process your calculations against.
