## Return zero when numerator is blank

Hi all

I am doing a dax to return a zero when the numerator is blank.

The problem I have is that after I create the mesaure, I get a bunch of zeros from dates that have no data.

The original state is data from 1/1/2019 to 12/12019

With the dax, I get data since 2017 up tp 2023, which is my date table.

I tried when numerator is blank and denominator is <> than zero, then return a zero. Howver I get an error

``````Complaints =
IF(ISBLANK(SUM(complaints[number_complaints])) && SUM(production[production]) <> "", 0 ,
(
(SUM (complaints[number_complaints]) /
SUM(production[production])))
*VALUE(1000000) )
``````

How can I get it right?

Thanks!

The problem is your second condition SUM(produc

tion[production]) <> "", <> is not equal to in DAX.
Do you want to make this condition not equal to blank? If so, try replace with

``Not ISBLANK(SUM(production[production]))``

Or you want some thing else?

Try to use divide also.

``````Complaints =

IF(ISBLANK(SUM(complaints[number_complaints])), 0 ,
(divide(
(SUM (complaints[number_complaints]) ,
SUM(production[production])),0)
*VALUE(1000000) ) ``````
