Replacing (BLANK) field with Text

Hello,

 

I am currently trying to replace a (blank) field with the text "Machine Check not Carried Out". The column itself is also in text format.

 

However, I can't seem to find the correct measure:

 

MKMachineBlank = IF( 'MaintenanceRequired2' = 0, "Machine Check Not Carried Out", 'MaintenanceRequired2') 
 
I'm currently using the above, but it appears that this measure is for replacing a number field that is displaying a (blank) as apposed to my situation where I want to replace a text field (blank) with text.
 
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi, @kelly008 
Try this

MKMachineBlank = 
var CurrentItem = SELECTEDVALUE('Preventative Maintenance Log'[MaintenanceRequired2])
return IF( ISBLANK(CurrentItem )||CurrentItem = "", "Machine Check Not Carried Out",  CurrentItem)

HI @kelly008 ,

 

What is the datatype of the column MaintenanceRequired2 in your table?

Is MaintenanceRequired2 a column in your table or measure?

 

If it is a column and is of text datatype, then use the following DAX expression:

MKMachineBlank =
IF (
    ISBLANK ( yourTable[MaintenanceRequired2] ) = TRUE(),
    "Machine Check Not Carried Out",
    yourTable[MaintenanceRequired2]
)

In the above DAX expression just replace yourTable with the table name you have at your end.

 

Best Regards,

I'm guessing this is becuase I didnt include the table that the column is coming from? This is the table alongside the column and the measure you suggested:
